Certified Respiratory Educators in Saskatchewan

Certified Respiratory Educators (CRE’s) teach clients about their COPD, asthma and other lung diseases. They can also teach about preventative measures, how to avoid triggers that worsen symptoms, the proper use of medications, diet and lifestyle counseling, and the use of written action plans that allow rapid adjustment of medications when symptoms worsen. CRE’s can help you to quit smoking and help navigate the health care system.

When you are diagnosed with a lung disease, it can feel overwhelming. You will likely have many questions and the answers may not always be clear at first. Symptoms and treatment may differ from person to person. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider about your treatment options and get answers to all of your questions.  Make sure you build a good relationship with your doctor, other healthcare providers. Learning how to manage your disease is the first step in maintaining your health and regaining quality of life. This is much easier with a CRE on your team.
