Partners Asthma Center

Partners Asthma Center is a collaboration among asthma specialists at four of the major Partners HealthCare hospitals in the greater Boston area, including the Harvard Medical School-affiliated teaching hospitals, Brigham and Women’s/Faulkner Hospitals and Massachusetts General Hospital, as well as Newton-Wellesley Hospital and North Shore Medical Center.

As part of our mission to teach other healthcare professionals the specialized skills of asthma care, in 2004 we established the Asthma Educators Institute and began offering live, one-day seminars – both introductory and advanced -- to nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and others interested in learning more about asthma and related diseases.


The core introductory course that we developed is called “Becoming an Asthma Educator: Learn to Teach Patients and Families About Asthma.” It is also appropriate as a preparatory course for those interested in taking (and passing!) the National Asthma Educators Certification Board examination. We are pleased to make this course available on-line as part of our distance learning initiative. We plan to offer additional asthma-related courses in the months and years ahead.
