The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ is about to launch the latest Asthma & COPD Fundamentals course, containing the most current information and best practice available in New Zealand.
The course is designed for all registered health professionals, including GPs, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and chiropractors.
The course consists of two parts:
1. An e-Learning series of four online modules:
2. A one-day classroom-based MasterClass.
The MasterClass uses scenarios to focus on putting the knowledge into practice, utilising health literacy and cultural competency. The MasterClass is to be completed within six months of the e-Learning Series.
Feedback from the course pilot participants has been positive,
“I think an excellent job has been done here, as everything is clearly explained in a range of ways that make it interesting to complete. Well done!”
The online modules for the COPD & Asthma Fundamentals is due to be available in March 2017. The first MasterClass will be available in June 2017.
