The Lung Associations of Saskatchewan and Manitoba created a professional development program in 1999 to teach health care professionals how to better educate people with asthma and COPD.
RESPTREC (the Respiratory Training and Educator Course) continues to evolve. The program's goal is to provide health care professionals with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to empower people and their caregivers to optimally manage their chronic disease.
Our program content is based on the most recent Canadian evidence-based guidelines. The development and content for our courses have been guided by clinical experts, Canadian guidelines committee members, respiratory educators, education consultants, researchers and individuals representing various health care professions.
Online learning and hands-on workshops are offered. The courses provide the highest standard of training in asthma, COPD and education for learners who wish to challenge the Canadian Network for Respiratory Care national certification. (www.cnrchome.net) A skills-based spirometry course is also part of our family of programs. A diploma is issued upon successful completion of each course.
Our courses are unique in that they are endorsed by several associations, including the Canadian Thoracic Society, The Canadian Respiratory Health Professionals, The Lung Association, and the Family Physicians Airways Group of Canada. RESPTREC is administered through the Lung Association of Saskatchewan and supported by the Lung Health Institute of Canada.
The Lung Association of Saskatchewan is a nationally certified private educational institution and course participants can be provided with a tuition tax credit receipt.
RESPTREC faculty includes specially trained health care professionals who are actively involved in respiratory health in their communities, and who have shown leadership in the area of patient education.
We are pleased to offer many continuing education opportunities to our graduates such as articles, news updates, webinars, and educational videos.
Join our family at RESPTREC. Advance your skills. Be a leader in respiratory care.
