Instructor Online Training

The Roaring Adventures of Puff Online Training Program is an evidence-based, practical, training program for health professionals to optimize how they provide education to children with asthma especially in school or group settings.  The curriculum for health professionals contains strategies and templates to plan, prepare, implement and evaluate the RAP program.

Until 2009, this training was delivered to small groups in an in-person format. In 2009, to optimize flexibility and access for remotely located health care professionals, the training was launched as an on-line course. The on-line course contains 10 required and two elective courses, namely:

  1. Introduction to RAP
  2. Lived Perspective
  3. Asthma 101
  4. Changing Behaviours
  5. Supporting Parents
  6. Asthma Friendly Schools
  7. Social Support and Peer Mentoring
  8. Teaching Skills
  9. Small Groups
  10. RAP Up
  11. Diversity in Health Care (elective)
  12. Puppetry (elective)

Features include discussion forums, self-assessment tools, on-line expert facilitators and extensive resources. Participants have the flexibility to complete the course at their own pace – within a 10 week timeframe.
