Well done for all your hard work, you have reached the end of the course!

Over the past five weeks, we have explored a range of topics including:

  • The main symptoms, impact and risk factors of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • The physical, psychological and social impact of chronic respiratory diseases on the individual, their family and communities.
  • Skills in the diagnosis and management of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other chronic respiratory disease in children and adults.
  • Skills in communicating and supporting patients with asthma, COPD and other chronic respiratory diseases and how to live with their condition
  • Advice in relation to your local context, taking account of the global variation in access to care and treatment, and workforce.

We hope you have enjoyed the course and have had a chance to complete the activities and interact with your peers over the past few weeks. We have really enjoyed having you on the course and it has been good to share experiences and to hear about your practices in different countries.
