Respiratory Health Forum 2012

January 26th and 27th 2012


 We are pleased to report that 160 physicians and allied health professionals from  Family Health Teams/CHC/AHAC participated in the 2nd Annual Respiratory Health Forum 2012.

As you would expect, the outcome of the needs assessment survey was instrumental in the creation of a target-audience focused agenda.

The forum included the following:

  • Planned interaction between new and “seasoned” teams,
  • The presentation of three ‘model’ programs, (including one urban FHT, one rural FHT, and one CHC).
  • Facilitated presentations on Pediatric Asthma, Asthma versus COPD, WRA, Sleep Apnea/Asthma
  • Hands-on opportunities to learn about spirometry, Assessment Tools, and
  • Access to expert resources and other program tools.
