The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers and The Lung Association-Ontario Provider Education Program have developed a program on Work-related Asthma (WRA) for health care providers. This program will help ensure that the diagnosis and management of work-related asthma patients in Ontario is carried out in accordance with CTS Guidelines for Occupational Asthma.

Participants will be able to:

  • Screen for WRA in all working adults with new onset asthma or recent deterioration of existing asthma.
  • Recognize and objectively diagnose WRA.
  • Provide optimum management to better control asthma symptoms, reduce or prevent workplace exposures and, where necessary, seek support for affected patients.

This program can be tailored to your needs, and is usually a one hour program comprised of a didactic presentation delivered by specialists in the field, followed by a facilitated case discussion period. Participants have the benefit of gaining knowledge from a specialist in the field of work-related asthma and an opportunity to actively work through cases. The workshop has been accredited in Ontario for one Mainpro+ credit by the CFPC.
