This programme offers registered nurses an opportunity to engage in evidence-based, patient centred, and responsive respiratory care. This care spans a continuum from health promotion, risk reduction and self -management to proactive assessment, monitoring and the management of the individual with critical needs.

This programme will focus on providing nurses with (1) an opportunity to explore contemporary thinking and practice in relation to respiratory health education and promotion and (2) critically examine the positive contribution that health policy can make not just to individual well-being but to society at large.
