Welcome to the Methapharm Training / QA Program for Methacholine Challenge Testing. The purpose of the program is to assist healthcare professionals and facilities with the implementation of a new methacholine challenge service and to provide a “ready to use” QA program for those currently providing the service.

This program is intended for healthcare professionals working in the field of pulmonary diagnostics. Prior to completing this program, the participant should be proficient in Pulmonary Function Testing.

There are three different modules in this program each with their own study material, as well as their own post test evaluations. If you have any questions or require assistance please contact us.
