Asthma Devices and the Health Care Professional Series

Credit Hours: 5.0  |   Fee: $152.50

In many health and educational settings, professionals are exposed to individuals who are struggling with uncontrolled asthma or poorly controlled COPD or engaged in ineffective self-management strategies. This series will equip learners with a practical but thorough understanding of inhaler devices, their proper use and care. In addition, learners will become familiar with how to identify poor inhaler technique and how to coach patients to improve their use of respiratory delivery devices. Recorded demonstrations of devices being used correctly enhance the learning experience. Visual displays of numerous devices add to the learner's understanding of the mechanisms and patient use of each type of device. Supporting materials located in the online classroom help health professionals to remain current. Included in the course package learners will receive: placebo asthma devices, online audiovisual classroom reference materials, and an individualized feedback session to guide health professionals in the delivery of effective inhaler device counseling.
