Asthma Guidelines for Health Care Professionals

Next month, the American Lung Association will release a new resource for school nurses. The Asthma Guidelines for Health Care Professionals training is a free one-hour course providing the latest information on asthma diagnosis, treatment, and management including SMART therapy and severe asthma. To prepare for the content of that course, you can get started today by taking the free Asthma Basics course. Asthma Basics ensures you have a solid foundation of asthma knowledge before the Asthma Guidelines for Health Care Professionals course is launched. Completers will earn one CME for Asthma Basics, and one CME for the Asthma Guidelines for Health Care Professionals training. Make sure to watch for the live link and details in September!
