Are you prepared for the upcoming thunderstorm asthma and hay fever season? The pollen season is coming in October and with it an increased risk of thunderstorm asthma. In this 60-minute webinar you will learn what thunderstorm asthma is and under which environmental circumstances it could occur. Understand, who is at risk and how to manage patients with an increased risk if thunderstorm asthma is the forecast.
The webinar incorporates the learnings of the 2016 Melbourne thunderstorm asthma event to get you ready for the thunderstorm asthma season. You will refresh your knowledge on how to manage asthma in your clinic. Important tools such as Asthma Action Plans and First Aid Plans for Asthma will be discussed to help you educating at-risk patients.
Furthermore, the webinar will prepare you for this year’s National Asthma Week, which is the first week of September, highlighting the thunderstorm asthma topic. Apart from that, in Victoria a thunderstorm asthma public health campaign by the Department of Health and Human Services (Vic) is launching in early September.
Both are expected to increase public awareness and the interaction of the public with primary health care.
The webinar was developed the National Asthma Council Australia (NAC), is presented the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) and supported by the Department of Health and Human Services (Vic).
This educational activity is currently seeking accreditation for 1 CPD hours.
