E-Learning: Short Course in Clinical Management of Asthma

8 CPD Points Only R 2 500.00 (incl VAT)

FPD is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as a Private Higher Education Institution (PHEI) in terms of Section 54(1)(c) of the Act and Regulation 16(4)(a).


"The prevalence of asthma in South Africa is high and asthma is a common condition. We should expect then that it would be familiar to the medical profession and well managed and controlled. However, many surveys of asthma care have been published from around the world (including South Africa). They suggest that in total only 5% of asthmatics are meeting the 'goals of asthma management' as set out in guidelines. Despite availability of useful asthma therapies and treatment strategies the morbidity from asthma remains significant." Robin J Green, Associate Professor, Department of Paediatrics, University of Pretoria.
