The American Lung Association's Asthma Basics program is offered as a self-paced online learning module or an in-person workshop and designed to help people learn more about asthma. The program is ideal for frontline healthcare professionals, such as school nurses or community health workers, as well as individuals with asthma, parents of children with asthma, and co-workers, friends and family who want to learn more about asthma. The Asthma Basics online learning module is available in English and Spanish.

This program teaches participants to:

  • Recognize and manage triggers,
  • Understand the value of an asthma action plan, and
  • Recognize and respond to a breathing emergency.

One of the highlights of the program is the What Is Asthma? Animation that shows the three primary changes in the airways during an asthma episode.

Asthma Basics also includes comprehensive resources, including asthma medication devices and demonstration videos and downloads.

If you have any questions about registering for the online course, visit Online Learning Course Support to see potential solutions or to request more help. To learn more about how to host an Asthma Basics In-Person workshop please contact your local Lung Association office.
