The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop a new online course, Wildfire Smoke and Your Patients’ Health -- with continuing education credit provided by the CDC. The free course includes sections on health effects, populations at greater risk of experiencing health effects, air quality and smoke, actions to take before and during a wildfire to reduce smoke exposure, and available resources. The course takes about 45 minutes to complete and is intended for physicians, registered nurses, asthma educators and others involved in clinical or health education. It complements the recently updated publication: Wildfire Smoke: A Guide for Public Health Officials. More resources on Wildfire Smoke and Health can be found at the EPA’s Smoke-Ready Toolbox for Wildfires.
