Spirometry training – NHS England London Respiratory Network

June 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

NHSE’s London Respiratory Network will be facilitating two webinar sessions for children and adult spirometry competency training in 2024. The aim of these online training sessions are to ensure improvement of competency skills for accurate and early diagnosis for spirometry. These sessions are aimed at the NHS workforce of London; for colleagues who are performing and/or interpreting spirometry tests and/or supporting MDTs.

Session one will focus on basic anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the respiratory system. The definitions of common spirometric values, an overview of spirometers, infection control and quality control of spirometers. This session will also cover pre-test considerations, indications and contra-indications to spirometry (Covering the ARTP curriculum from 2.3.3 to 2.3.3.7).

Session two will focus on the other ARTP curriculum sections relevant to the undertaking and interpretation of spirometry tests and build on the learnings outlined in the previous session.  This will include performance of spirometry  and the assessment and review of spirometry results (Covering the ARTP curriculum from 2.3.3.8 to 2.3.3.9).

Following these virtual sessions, a practical session should then be undertaken locally.
