Building Community-based Programs

For over 25 years, RANA has created a culture of fierce caring and generosity. Every employee takes great pride in the support we provide our clients, our communities and the respiratory profession.

We advocate for the people, programs, and events that impact healthcare; both locally and nationally. In addition to providing our time and financial support, we find innovative ways to address challenges in the provincial and national healthcare systems.

Continuing Respiratory Education

As a leader in respiratory care, RANA is a dedicated supporter of events that enable respiratory professionals to expand their knowledge and share ideas.

RANA is extensively involved through employee time, financial aid and active participation in all stages of educator certification.

Breathe Life Conference

Through funding and employee resources, RANA supported the planning and delivery of this conference, which provides education to doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in respiratory care.

Pioneering Research

RANA believes ongoing research is critical to understanding and improving the quality of life for those suffering from respiratory symptoms. We recently developed, funded and executed a three-year pilot project for Chronic Respiratory Disease Management in smaller Canadian communities.

The program was intended to develop a toolbox of respiratory care skills and processes that improves patient care and can be easily transferred to other primary care settings. The second key objective was to show how investment in the program lowers future healthcare costs, over a 10 – 20 year period.
