This course will equip you with the knowledge relevant to cardiopulmonary diseases and broaden your understanding on the patient’s journey in healthcare from a holistic perspective – starting from symptoms emerge to the disease diagnosis and assessment, and finally, disease management in an interdisciplinary approach. In addition, as psychological intervention is also an important part in the all-round care of patients, this course also covers topics about the psychosocial needs of patients and caregivers.

If you are currently suffering from these diseases; or taking care of patients with cardiopulmonary diseases; or anyone who is interested in this field, you are also encouraged to take this course to have better understanding on these topics!
