Description

Our Asthma and COPD training course will equip delegates with the knowledge needed to provide appropriate and effective treatment and support to patients.

Relevant to healthcare professionals in all sectors of care, our Asthma and COPD course will inform delegates of latest developments and guidelines. It will enable them to assist clients in managing their conditions and, where possible, prevent progression across all stages of the diseases.

The content reflects the priorities for care identified in the NICE (2010) guidelines for the management of COPD in adults.

Our Asthma and COPD training has a recommendation rate of 100% and is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners. On completion, delegates will be awarded with a certificate of attendance and 6 CPD points.

All Annie Barr Associates clinical courses are led by trainers who are qualified healthcare professionals with a wealth of clinical and teaching experience. Non-clinical courses are delivered by suitably qualified and experienced professionals who are experts on the subject matter.

Please note: This is a full day course. Delegates are asked to arrive at the venue for registration at 9.30am. The training will take place from 10.00am - 4.00pm.
