American Respiratory Care Foundation's Journal Conferences
This program has seen longevity and success. Presenting for the 46th
time March, 2010, the Journal Conference program brings together a panel of
experts on a specific topic to provide a comprehensive, scientific,
state-of-the-art review. These conferences provide continuing medical education to over
35,000 respiratory therapists. The published Journal conference papers are
the most valued of the American Respiratory Care Foundation's and the American Association for Respiratory Care's scientific
journal, RESPIRATORY CARE, as evidenced by its Internet traffic. Additionally, many of the papers generated from prior conferences
have become core material for courses in respiratory therapy schools and have
been incorporated into the syllabi for hospital departments and medical
Indoor Air Quality Continuing Medical Education
This program was created with a grant from the EPA, and offers continuing
medical education to respiratory therapists (RTs) regarding indoor air
quality. The value of this education extends to patients of RTs and is
especially important for individuals with asthma because of their sensitivity
to allergens in the air. RTs can use this information to educate both
patients they work with and community members.
