The Asthma Educator Institute™ (AEI) is a three partial-day preparatory course for individuals that want to implement asthma guidelines-based care and those qualified to take the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) certified asthma educator (AE-C) examination. The AEI was developed with experts in the field of asthma and reflects the 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, community health workers and educators with 1000+ direct hours of asthma education eligible to sit for the national asthma certification (AE-C) exam. This course is also a great refresher for current certified asthma educator's preparing for recertification, and also includes approved CEU/CME credit to recertify without retaking the exam.
The curriculum aligns with the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) Candidate Handbook and includes case reviews, hands-on skills demonstrations and practice.
Note: This program is designed as a prep course for the NBRC AE-C 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.
The upcoming Asthma Educator Institute will be held virtually in a live-stream format. This event will be hosted in the Eastern time zone.
