Asthma Management for School Staff Webinar

Start the Asthma Management for School Staff online training program.

 

In collaboration with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE), Respiratory Health Association developed an online training that highlights appropriate emergency response procedures as well as Illinois polices that apply to asthma management in schools.

The program helps schools meet compliance with Public Act 99-0843, passed last year at RHA’s urging, which requires Illinois school districts to:

•  Have an asthma episode emergency response protocol
•  Ensure school staff receive asthma management training every two years
•  Every year, request an Asthma Action Plan from students with documented asthma

TRAINING COMPONENTS

  • How to manage asthma in a school setting
  • Asthma triggers and how to prevent asthma symptoms in a school-setting

TRAINING AUDIENCE

The Asthma Management for School Staff webinar is intended for all school staff including administrators, school nurses, classroom teachers, case managers, counselors, health clerks, physical education teachers, health teachers, office clerks, etc.

The training takes approximately one hour to complete.
