EDUCATION - HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS
Open Airways believes that the key to a well organized island-wide asthma education program is to have a well trained multi-disciplinary team of health care professionals, working together delivering clear consistent care. Education is the key to improving quality of life for people of all ages with asthma.
We aim to provide EXPERT TRAINING for EFFECTIVE CARE!
BHB CME program also offers asthma and COPD presentations periodically throughout the year. HERE for link to BHB website
We work closely with Harvard Professor,
Dr. Christopher Fanta, founder of The Partners Asthma Centre at The Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Dr Fanta is passionate about teaching the specialized skills of asthma care to health care professionals.
He has established an excellent 6 hour e-learning course called ‘Becoming an Asthma Educator - go to www.asthmalearning.org for more information. The price of the course is a modest $75.00! You can also look at his Asthma Grand Rounds lectures on YouTube which are free of charge.
One-day asthma and COPD workshops facilitated by overseas consultants with local instructors are held in the Spring each year for health care professionals.
Other workshops are held throughout the year for pharmacists, nursing assistants, social workers and other in-service workshops.
