I work as my hospital’s Asthma Educator in mainly the In-Patient realm but occasionally with Out-Patients.
December 2009 was my professional certification date but I have been involved in asthma patient education since the 1970’s.
Associate degree in Respiratory Therapy. I am also a RRT and have 3 additional years of college courses.
I keep up on advances in Asthma treatment and diagnosis by careful review of asthma publications.
0-8 but a lot of adults as well.
Teach back method primarily but discussion with the patients as well.
