Asthma Education – Schools and Early Childhood 
Boosting confidence, ensuring those caring for our children are equipped to manage an asthma first aid situation, our respiratory nurse educators visit schools, early childhood centre or kōhanga and deliver free education and advice to staff.  
These informal 30 minute to an hour sessions fit nicely into a staff meeting and cover: 
  • Asthma signs – what to look out for 
  • Asthma triggers – what sets off asthma 
  • Asthma First Aid - Up to date procedures for dealing with an attack and administering medication  
  • Asthma resources – a leave behind resource for staff to refer to in the future 
There is usually time for a question and answer session too, giving staff an opportunity to settle any queries. These sessions can also be delivered to parents/caregivers at a time and location convenient to the group. 
For primary schools, the process can result in an Asthma Friendly School certification.  
“Great professional development” – Centre Manager 
“Highly recommend these sessions. We learnt so much in half an hour” – Teacher
