The Healthy Lung Expo is a program designed for patients and healthcare providers to learn more about the latest trends, resources and research surrounding COPD, asthma and lung cancer. Speakers from a variety of fields will present current medical based research on topics that have the most impact on those whose lives are touched by these conditions.
This year we introduce the Asthma Education Program, featuing Asthma Education and Management. Asthma Management and Education, is a 2-hour program that
recognizes the critical role allied health professionals play in educating and
caring for the patient with asthma and allergies. Nurses earn 2.6 continuing
education credits and respiratory therapists earn 2 CRCE credits while learning
the latest information on the pathophysiology of asthma and allergy; current
treatment methods; effective techniques for patient education; ways to prevent
asthma episodes; and hands-on experience with peak flow meters and
demonstration of medication delivery devices.
The importance of establishing a patient/clinician partnership for
asthma management and patient education is also emphasized. The program
reflects the most current standards from the 2007 National Asthma
Education and Prevention Program’s (NAEPP) Expert Panel Report 3:
Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma.
Attendees will be treated to a relaxing day full of inspirational messages, education, exhibits, luncheon and door prizes.
