The One Minute Asthma Training

The Self Assessment Learning Tool (SALT) is the foundation of the One Minute Asthma Training for Allied Helath Professionals. The SALT helps trainees to define what they already know about asthma and identify what they still need to learn. After reading One Minute Asthma to learn the answers to the questions they miss, trainees will have a basic knowledge of asthma and asthma devices. They will be able to participate fully in the three-hour seminar with their colleagues.

Click on the link below to see a sample Asthma Learning Tool, a brief version of the SALT.

How the SALT works:

  • Most questions are based on individual pages of One Minute Asthma. Answer questions with a word or phrase and answer sentences as yes or no.
  • Questions not fully covered in One Minute Asthma are marked with an asterisk, and the answers are given at the end of the quiz.
  • A more extensive SALT serves as the foundation for the One Minute Asthma Training for Allied Health Professionals.


  • A professional with significant asthma knowledge will be able to answer 80 percent of these questions without referring to any text. A person with minimal knowledge of asthma may only know the answer to 10 percent of these questions.
  • After completing the One Minute Asthma Training you should score between 80 and 100 percent, depending on your initial fund of knowledge and amount of time spent in subsequent study.
