Respiratory Education to Support Professionals through e-learning: RESPe

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland in partnership with the University of Edinburgh and NHS Scotland respiratory clinicians developed RESPe as a free online learning resource to enhance educational opportunities for health and social care professionals who work with those affected by chronic lung disease in Scotland. It provides flexible and accessible educational opportunities for non-respiratory and generalist staff within primary, secondary & social care settings, thus also supporting health & social care integration. It aligns with the National Clinical Strategy for Scotland as well as the Respiratory Improvement Plan as supported by the National Advisory Group for Respiratory MCNs.
