Tu Kotahi Māori Asthma Trust Correspondence Course

Introduction Tu Kotahi Māori Asthma Trust Training
Many people involved in asthma education throughout New Zealand are working in isolation with limited support from others in the asthma management field.  At present security in knowing that you are teaching the correct information in the best way possible may be difficult to assess.  Remaining updated with so much new information about asthma that is being constantly discovered, is a struggle. Meanwhile recognition for the specialised skills that many have while working in asthma education is not available.

With the logistics of time, place, level of skill, and money, the idea of developing a Correspondence Course with a certification on completion, came into being.
