CME (Continuing Medical Education)
BCCC offers different asthma presentations to physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and registered nurses and provides them with CME’s. These events can be part of existing programs, such as the ProFAA program, or can be their own stand-alone event sponsored, or co-sponsored by BCCC.
School Staff and Teacher Trainings
BCCC provides asthma trainings to K-12 staff and teachers. These trainings
follow a clear outline developed to cater to the increasing time constraints
and limitations of school personnel. Trainings cover asthma signs and symptoms,
medications and how to use them, emergency signs and how to proceed, as
well as updated information on pertinent legislation, such as AB 2132, which
allows students with asthma to carry and self administer their asthma medication.
