Agoraphobia is the anxiety that occurs when one is in a public or crowded place, from which a potential escape is difficult, or help may not be readily available. It is characterized by the fear that a panic attack or panic-like symptoms may occur in these situations. Individuals with agoraphobia, therefore, strive to avoid such situations or locations. This activity describes the diagnostic criteria and characteristics of agoraphobia and outlines the interprofessional team's role in its evaluation and management.
