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 of CRCE.
