The Asthma Educator Institute™ (AEI) is a two-day preparatory course for individuals that want to implement asthma guidelines-based care and for those qualified to take the National Asthma Educator Certification Board (NAECB) examination. The AEI was developed with experts in the field of asthma and reflects recommendations of the National Institute of Health, Expert Panel Report 3: Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Asthma.
AEI is a professional education course that targets diverse healthcare professionals, such as: nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, other licensed or credentialed healthcare professionals, and educators. Unlicensed staff who have 1000+ direct hours of asthma education and are eligible to sit for the national asthma certification exam are also welcome. The course is a great refresher for AE-C’s preparing for recertification. You may wish to submit the hours for approval for re-certification as well.
The curriculum aligns with the National Asthma Educator Certification (NAECB) Candidate Handbook and includes case reviews, hands-on skills demonstrations and practice.
