New Allergic Rhinitis Case Study on our REAL website
Education for Health are pleased to add a new case study to our REAL website, aimed at supporting the UK respiratory nursing community to improve their confidence and competence.
Our new case study, Katy, has a family history of asthma, and has been suffering with a blocked and runny nose intermittently for six weeks – visitors to the website are challenged to work through the symptoms, potential treatment choices and management.
As Katy is just three, the challenges include considering the young age of the child and her increased risk of asthma in the future.
Beverley Bostock, who created some of the case studies, says it’s an exciting development in bite-sized learning. “As a hands-on clinician myself working in general practice, I know how hard it can be keeping up to date. The REAL Respiratory Clinic (http://real.educationforhealth.org) allows us to try out a case study, practice what we might do in that situation and prepare for practice in real life. Even better, we can dip in and out of the case studies as time allows. This way, learning fits into our lives, rather than our lives having to fit around our learning”.

In the latest REAL case study, 83 year old Stanislav (Stan) has been diagnosed with COPD for more than 20 years, has been admitted to hospital three times in the past year and you receive his most recent discharge letter. What do you do next?
Taught by expert practising clinicians, these workshops held in Warwick will provide you with a valuable introduction to general practice.
