Respiratory conditions can have a significant impact on an older person’s quality of life. This course explores the underlying causes and strategies to support the person and enable staff to provide appropriate care.

This is a Developing course on the Altura Learning Pathway and is recommended for all staff working in social care.

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Describe key signs and symptoms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma, occupational lung diseases, and pneumonia
  • Identify potential impacts that respiratory conditions may have on a person’s daily life, including the psychological and emotional effects
  • Apply practical strategies to improve the quality of life for an older person with a respiratory condition

The course is accompanied by a comprehensive set of learning resources, including a course information sheet, infographic, quick reference guide and coordinator resources, which include a training game.

This course is available in a SCORM format. It has been developed using eLearning authoring tools that provide greater interactivity and flexibility for learners. The design of the course maximises active rather than passive learning, which enhances the learning process and increases knowledge retention.
