Subject matter expert
e-Learning for Healthcare
Endorsed By
Education for Health, NHS England


This programme for healthcare professionals aims to improve the diagnosis and management of asthma as a long term condition for adults. It is a foundation level educational resource aimed at non-asthma specialist healthcare professionals, who come into contact with adults with asthma.


eIntegrity programmes are developed by NHS Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme (HEE e-LfH). 


The programmes are high quality self-directed learning programmes.  They are designed to support training and CPD and are excellent resources alongside other traditional teaching methodologies.  They have been developed by the UK NHS for use in the NHS.  However, many of the programmes have international relevance, particularly the specialty training programmes which are often mapped to UK specialty training curricula.

Instructors / Speakers
Viv Marsh,
Clinical Lead for Asthma and Allergy, Education for Health

Viv has 25 years’ experience of clinical practice in the NHS in both primary and secondary care and joined Education for Health in 2013 as the Clinical Lead for Asthma and Allergy.

She believes that excellence in education for healthcare professionals is the key to improving health outcomes for people with asthma and allergy. Identifying people with poor disease control and helping them to improve their disease management through shared decision making and action planning is essential if we are to improve quality of life for people with asthma and allergy and prevent avoidable deaths. 

In addition to her educational role, Viv also works part time in primary care reviewing and managing patients with respiratory disease.

She has a number of additional professional interests including a role on the editorial board for a nursing journal, writing for publication and is a member of the Asthma UK Council for Health Professionals.

Viv is also on the committee for the National Paediatric Respiratory and Allergy Nurses Group, where she leads on primary care issues, and was a panellist on the National Review of Asthma Deaths.
