Asthma affects 10% of all Australian children, with most carrying the condition into adult life. It’s important that workers in care-giving occupations have a thorough understanding of asthma, its triggers and symptoms, along with strategies in place to minimise the impact of an asthmatic attack.

What Will You Learn?

The signs of asthma can be easy to detect, and with a treatment plan in place, those under competent supervision are in good hands. The Asthma Course (22282VIC) contains important skill sets for asthma response:

  • Signs and symptoms of asthma: mild, moderate, severe and life-threatening
  • Risk management strategies for the workplace
  • Hazard identification and reduction
  • Common allergic and non-allergic asthma triggers

Asthma Course

It’s heartening that care occupations are finally being recognised for the far-reaching benefits they provide. Asthma is an extremely problematic ailment that isn’t going away any time soon, making first aid precaution and countermeasures extremely useful. Health, wellness and care industries are an essential part of modern society, assisting Australians of all ages to remain safe and happy, and when staff are first aid trained to combat asthma and other allergies, help is always on hand. For a tailored learning experience, Real First Aid offers Management of Asthma Risks and Emergencies in the Workplace (22282VIC).

Why is the Asthma Course Important?

The course is complete in only 4 hours of dedicated participation. In that time, you will gain the knowledge and skills for timely emergency first aid response. Of course, not every accident is life-threatening, but it’s good to possess occupation-specific first aid skills that are ready for use. Asthma can be debilitating and even deadly, with young children most prone to the ill effects.

It’s also worth noting that asthma triggers are incredibly varied, with airborne particles among the suspects that cause bronchial problems and other ailments in people of all ages. With the number of people entrusted to caregiver attention increasing, the responsibility for occupational health and safety needs to be shared, and first aid skills training is an obvious solution.

Who is Asthma Response Training Suitable For?

Associated health industries such as childcare and aged care have facilitated an entirely new society. For example, approximately 50% of all Australian children aged 0-12 attend formal and informal child care. In other words, half of all Australian children require additional supervision when their parents are busy with other responsibilities. Real First Aid works hard to ease the burden on childcare and school staff by providing dramatically improved first aid and emergency response capabilities for staff and managers of caregiving institutions.

What are the Course Qualifications?

Asthma Course (22282VIC) qualifications are in demand throughout health and care industries.

Real First Aid qualifications are versatile, and any place people gather will be benefited by on site first aiders.

First aid and CPR training modules are compared to building blocks. Attainments can be built upon to form a comprehensive first aid skill set.
