Cystic Fibrosis Canada announces launch of free cystic fibrosis e-learning module
September 12, 2017 (Toronto) – It’s back to school season and thanks to a new educational resource from St. Michael’s Hospital, anyone can now easily upgrade their knowledge of cystic fibrosis (CF) to better help their patients, clients or loved ones.
The CF e-learning module contains a multitude of information that provides a comprehensive overview of CF to better equip people with the tools they need to understand this complex disease. The interactive format allows users to learn at their own speed and is great for professional or personal purposes.
The e-learning module was developed by Dr. Anju Anand and Dr. Melanie Chin from the CF clinic at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto in response to a need for better CF teaching resources. Cystic Fibrosis Canada is grateful for this undertaking and hopes that it is widely used by those affected by CF as we work together to care, treat and find a cure for Canadians living with CF.
The module is presented in a slide show format. You can review all of the pages using “Next” and “Previous” buttons or you can select specific sections/pages using links in the menu displayed in the left margin. Some of the pages act as menus to a variety of related topics. In other cases, the text includes “i” buttons that access more detailed information in pop-up frames.
As stated in the press release, the e-learning module is useful for both medical professionals and others in the CF community without medical training. If you are inspired to learn more about particular topics presented in the module some pages include links to in depth information on other sites. We think you will find this to be a useful resource to expand or refresh your knowledge of CF as well as an aid in explaining CF to family and friends.
