This Enhancing the Diagnostic and Management of Respiratory Disease Level 7 module is suitable for healthcare professionals (HCPs) and professions allied to medicine (PAMs) who are involved in the differential diagnosis and management of respiratory disease.
Symptoms such as breathlessness, cough and wheeze are common in a range of respiratory (and other) conditions and this module supports HCPs and PAMs to take a deductive and analytical approach to making a diagnosis.

Clinical investigations are important to enable clinicians to help confirm or rule out suspected diagnosis. Common investigations performed in primary or secondary care include spirometry, PEF monitoring, arterial and capillary blood gas analysis, x-ray, allergy testing and a variety of other tests.
The Respiratory Diagnostics Level 7 module, validated by the University of Hertfordshire, will address the principles underpinning a number of respiratory investigations and will seek to provide studies with a critical view of the accuracy and validity of the tests, by consideration of the concepts of sensitivity and specificity.
