Respiratory learning plan 2

8.25 credits

This learning plan aims to support education for GPs and nurses on respiratory topics. Bronchiectasis, hayfever, hoarse voice, allergic rhinitis, asthma exacerbations and chronic cough in children are all covered.

The range of topics reflects the role of GPs and other healthcare professionals in diagnosis, management, investigation, referral and follow-up of respiratory conditions.

Each educational activity provides key learning points along with a post-test so you can check what you have learned. You can undertake the whole plan or select individual modules to match your identified learning needs. CPD credits can be claimed for all modules completed.
