Expand Your Asthma Skills with FREE Course
Thanks to an ongoing partnership between the American Respiratory Care
Foundation and the Environmental Protection Agency, respiratory therapists
have brand new opportunity to expand their asthma management skills. “Allergy
Skin Testing and Smoking Cessation—the Expanded Role of the Respiratory
Therapist” complements the original course in this series, “Indoor
Asthma Triggers and the Respiratory Therapist.” Both of the courses
in this series are FREE for RTs and each has been approved for 3 hours
