FeNO in Asthma elearning programme
This FeNO training package consists of 2 educational modules, primarily targeted at a primary care audience, however any health professional may complete this course.
Health Education England elearning for healthcare, in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement, Accelerated Access Collaborative, WAHSN, AHSN Network, and the Office for Life Sciences, developed two elearning modules focused on FeNO in Asthma.
These elearning modules are designed to enhance awareness of FeNO testing to support increasing the test’s uptake whilst also ensuring health care professionals are provided with the knowledge and skills required for the optimal use of this simple and safe test in the diagnosis and management of asthma.
Module one aims to improve the learner’s understanding of FeNO, how the test is performed and appropriate language to use when talking about FeNO with patients.
Module two focuses on the interpretation of FeNO, providing an enhanced description of what FeNO is and how it can be used in the diagnosis of asthma, with case examples, covering a spectrum of clinical scenarios.
The modules are accessible via the elearning for healthcare website.
The fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) test measures the level of NO in the exhaled breath and provides an indication of eosinophilic inflammation in the lungs.
