“Becoming an Asthma Educator” is an in-depth course that includes didactic presentations, an interactive problem based learning case study and an up-to-date device workshop. 

This course is based on the 2007 NHLBI EPR-3 and the 2003 Global Initiative for Asthma Guidelines for the management of asthma. 

At the completion of this program, you will understand the trends in asthma prevalence, morbidity and mortality; the goals of asthma management; and you will be able to relate the risk factors that predispose patients to develop exacerbations and patho-physiology. 

The next four components of the class include assessment and diagnosis; control of factors that contribute to asthma; pharmacologic management; and education for a partnership – all related to the role of the asthma clinician and the educator. 

Finally, using problem based learning, the class will discuss several case studies of patients with asthma.
