The American Lung Association's Asthma Educator Institute is a two-day preparatory course for those qualified to take the National Asthma Educator Certification Board (NAECB) examination. Developed in January 2003, the Asthma Educator Institute was recently updated to reflect the National Asthma Education and Prevention Program Expert Panel Report 3: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma.
The curriculum covers the content outlined in the NAECB Candidate Handbook and includes case reviews, hands-on skills demonstration, and practice. The course is delivered by asthma experts from your community, including Certified Asthma Educators (AE-C).
The upcoming Asthma Educator Institute will be held on June 28 - 29 at Stanford University in Palo Alto. Sessions will run from 8:00 - 4:30 PM (PT).
