As a primary healthcare professional, you play a central role in improving lung health for all Australians, including early diagnosis and best-practice treatment and care for your patients with lung conditions.

The Lung Learning Hub provides you with a centralised source of training and education to improve your knowledge and skills in respiratory healthcare and optimise your patient care.

Through the easy to navigate self-appraisal tool, you can assess your current skill level against key areas and capabilities from the Lung Learning Framework. The Framework is Australia’s best-practice standards for the diagnosis, treatment and care of lung conditions. Using the results of your current knowledge and skill levels across these capabilities, we’ll create your own Lung Learning Hub of tailored education and training opportunities.

Why complete a self-appraisal?

The self-appraisal tool is designed to help you identify areas that you’d like to grow your knowledge and skills to enhance your respiratory healthcare. The Lung Learning Framework breaks these areas down into domains and capabilities to allow you to focus your professional development. Start your self-appraisal to find tailored education and learning opportunities to optimise your patient care and earn CPD points. All the training available through the Lung Learning Hub has been evaluated against the Framework to ensure it meets the national best-practice standards.
