Event Details

Hosted by Eastern Melbourne PHN and brought to you by the National Asthma Council Australia as part of the asthma best practice for health professionals program.

The Asthma and Respiratory Management Seminar provides role-specific education on best-practice asthma and respiratory management for nurses. Starting with the principles of diagnosis and management, the session covers current statistics, paediatric and adult asthma, allergy, medications, device technique, and COPD, followed by an overview of conducting spirometry in general practice.

Presenters:

  • Marg Gordon
  • Michelle Evans

Learning outcomes:

  • increase knowledge and awareness of current, evidence-based best practice in asthma and respiratory management,
  • develop practical skills to support the use of evidence-based procedures and practices (e.g. device use, patient education, spirometry),
  • learn strategies to incorporate this knowledge/skills systematically into routine clinical practice,
  • increase confidence in managing patients with asthma and linked chronic respiratory conditions.

Completion of this educational activity entitles eligible participants to claim up to 6 CPD hours.

Please note: participant numbers are limited and preference will be given to people working in general practice in the EMPHN catchment.
