Lung Foundation Australia recently released two new accredited eLearning modules about chronic wet cough called Lung Health in First Nations Children.
Chronic respiratory disease is highly prevalent amongst First Nations children. Disease progression can be halted and even reversed when diagnosed and treated early.
The free training provides a supportive tool for health professionals to improving lung health outcomes. Topics include:
- Fundamentals of providing culturally secure care to First Nations families
- Respiratory diseases prevalent in First Nations children and
- Appropriate ways of diagnosing and managing lung conditions.
These modules, developed in collaboration with Telethon Kids Institute and the Western Australian Health Translation Network, have been designed to be culturally appropriate and provide the opportunity to learn ways of providing culturally secure care.
The online training is free and accredited with RACGP and ACRRM. Each module is worth 2 CPD points and will take approximately one hour to complete. Find out more and enroll on the Lung Foundation Australia website.
