Outdoor Air Quality and Health and the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) October 5, 2010

Posted by admin in : Research/Studies/Education , comments closed

Free Course:

Outdoor air pollution plays a significant role in impacting the health of all citizens. Exposure to outdoor air pollution has been associated with adverse health outcomes, including impaired lung function, exacerbation of asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease and impacts on the cardiovascular system that may lead to hospitalization and premature death. Ambient air quality affects not only individuals with heart and breathing problems but also pregnant women, the very young and the elderly.

Beginning September 1, 2009, UBC School of Environmental Health presents an on-demand, online course on outdoor air quality and health and the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI). This course is available at no cost, made possible through funding by Health Canada. Accreditation is available to physicians, health professionals and other groups as listed below. Time commitment to individual learners is expected to be 3 to 4 hours plus time in an asynchronous discussion forum to discuss case studies and other course content with other learners and a subject matter expert. [N.B. This course will soon be available in French.]
