New FeNO in Asthma elearning is available

Health Education England elearning for healthcare worked in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement, Accelerated Access Collaborative, Wessex AHSN Network and the Office for Life Sciences to develop new elearning modules, focused on FeNO in Asthma. Although developed for primary care professionals, other healthcare professionals may find the modules useful.

What is FeNO?

FeNO (Fractional exhaled Nitric Oxide), is a test for measuring the amount of Nitric Oxide in the exhaled breath of patients. The results of the test can help with the diagnosis of asthma, by showing the level of inflammation in the lungs. A patient’s FeNO level helps improve the accuracy of asthma diagnosis and helps indicate which medications will work best for them.

About the new elearning module

The new module focuses on the interpretation of FeNO, providing an enhanced description of what FeNO is and how it can be used in the diagnosis of asthma, with case examples covering a spectrum of clinical scenarios.

An existing, introductory module aims to improve the learner’s understanding of FeNO, how the test is performed and appropriate language to use when talking about FeNO with patients.

More information

Healthcare professionals who are interested in the FeNO elearning modules can learn about them from a clinical champion in the virtual FeNO Learning Collaborative on Tuesday 15 March. Hosted by Wessex AHSN, read about the event and register for a place now.

To access the FeNO deployment toolkit, visit the Wessex ASHN website.
