About the short course
The short course is a collaboration between the UNSW Medicine & Health and the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network (SCHN). Brief descriptions of the 3 modules are below:
- Spirometry (Lung Function): covering how do you interpret lung function (good quality vs uninterpretable lung function), how to approach a breathless child - exploring the techniques of exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), provocation test such as mannitol challenge, and cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET).
- Chest Physiotherapy: covering who to refer and who doesn’t need referral (inpatient vs outpatient), what improvement you can expect from chest physiotherapy, new vs old techniques.
- Asthma Inhaler Devices: covering why do we need asthma education and how to provide education, advice on improving breathing including indoor air quality, house dust mite minimisation, how to provide a green asthma management plan (including new vs old devices and techniques).
Delegates are expected to attend the short course on 24 September which will be delivered sequentially one after another. An assessment consisting of 25 multiple choice questions (MCQs) will be available for credentialing.
