AARC Announces 2001 Videoconference Line-Up

Dallas, TX (Dec. 8, 2000) -- The American Association for Respiratory Care has announced its schedule of videoconferences for 2001, approved for continuing education credit for respiratory therapists and nurses.

The series of conferences, called Professor's Rounds in Respiratory Care, brings convenient education direct to facilities in two ways:

1. The initial showing of the conference is a live presentation sent by satellite direct to your facility. 2. If you aren't able to receive the satellite transmission, use our convenient teleconference option, which allows you to view the taped presentation and talk with the presenter live one month after the initial broadcast.

Programs for 2001 include:

Taking the Mystery Out of Weaning the Pediatric Patient from the Ventilator Live Videoconference - March 13 Teleconference with tape - April 10

Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Standard Care for Chronic Lung Disease Patients Live - March 27 Tape - April 17

Noninvasive Ventilation: The Latest Word Live - April 24 Tape - May 29

Education of the Patient with Asthma Live - May 22 Tape - June 19

ARDS: The Disease and Its Management Live - June 26 Tape - July 17

Invasive Ventilation: The Latest Word Live - September 25 Tape - October 16

The presenters are all well-known in respiratory care circles. This is the 12h year for the AARC's Professor's Rounds series. Respiratory therapists can earn 1 hour of Continuing Respiratory Care Education credit for either the live broadcast or teleconference option. Nurses can receive 1.2 hours of continuing education credit by participating in either interactive session.
