Education for Health – Education and Training

Education for Health are a leading UK based educational charity, working to transform the lives of people living with long term health conditions. Our vision is for a world where everyone living with a long term condition receives high quality care and can manage their condition to the best of their ability. We firmly believe that the way to achieve this is through a well informed and well educated workforce. This is why we have developed the REAL website to provide a free educational resource to healthcare professionals who have an interest in respiratory care.

We also run a range of one-day workshops, individual modules and programmes, which are aimed at education in a number of different subject areas.

To help increase your respiratory knowledge we have listed a number of courses that are relevant to the REAL website users.
