e-Learning

CFSmart includes four specific e-learning modules created to support and educate teachers about cystic fibrosis (CF).

 

Increased understanding of CF in the daycare, kindergarten and school settings helps to improve the education and development outcomes for children and teenagers living with CF.

Each module takes around 30 minutes and you will only need to complete two modules; the first module ‘What is CF?’ and either module 2, 3 or 4 depending on the year levels you teach. On completion you will receive a certificate recognising one hour towards your personal development target.

 

TIP: When you register, copy the password that is emailed to you so you can easily paste it – when you log in to complete the Modules. If you have trouble putting in your password after three attempts, you will be timed out for 5-20 minutes.

– Please use your full name when filling out the “User Name” section of the log in form, as that is the name that will appear on your certifcate when you complete the modules. 

– If you have any problems with the modules – Please send an email to education@cfcc.org.au . We are always keen to sort out any problems.

Module 1 – What is CF?

In Module 1 educators will learn;

 

  • What CF is and how it affects the body.
  • Available treatments and management of CF.
  • Other CF related complications.
  • The future for CF.

Module 2 – CF at kindergarten or daycare

Educators and staff from kindergarten and daycare centres will learn how to manage the symptoms of CF. On completion, the individual will understand the daily routine for young children with CF. Educators and carers will be left with the knowledge and confidence to better support those in their care living with CF.

Module 1 must be successfully completed before starting this module.

 

Module 3 – CF at primary school

In Module 3, school teachers will learn how to manage the symptoms of CF in the primary school setting and be more knowledgeable and confident to better support a student with CF at school.

Module 1 must be successfully completed before starting this module.

Module 4 – CF at high school

High school teachers will learn what allowances and needs students with CF have in a high school setting. Whilst many teens with CF are fairly independent, they may still require reminding to take certain medications and support if they are falling behind academically or socially through being absent.

Module 1 must be successfully completed before starting this module.
