The virtual Asthma Educator Institute™ (AEI) is a three half-day preparatory course for individuals that want to implement asthma guidelines-based care and those qualified to take the National Asthma Educator Certification Board (NAECB) examination. The AEI was developed with experts in the field with asthma and it reflects 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 frontline healthcare professionals, such as: nurses, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, other licensed or credentialed healthcare professionals, and educators with 1000+ direct hours of asthma education eligible to sit for the national asthma certification exam. Also, the course is a great refresher for AE-C's preparing for recertification.
The curriculum aligns with the National Asthma Educator Certification (NAECB) Candidate Handbook and includes case reviews, hands-on skills demonstrations and practice.
Note: This program is designed as a prep course for the NAECB Exam, but there is no requirement that participants sign up for the exam after completing the course. Any professional interested in gaining better skills and understanding of asthma self-management and implementing asthma guidelines-based care would benefit from this training.
A limited number of scholarships are available for health care professionals and community health workers in the Kansas City, MO/KS, Omaha, NE and Kosciusko County Indiana areas all involving community grant funding. These are available on a first come first served basis and are available for this event only. If you are interested please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to verify eligibility.
