Summary:

Molds reside with yeasts, mushrooms, and mildews in the fungi kingdom, one of five fundamental kingdoms of living organisms. The other kingdoms are Monera (bacteria), Protista (protozoa), Plantae (plants), and (Animalia) animals. Fungi are ubiquitous and abundant in nature. They make up 25% of the Earth’s biomass (the total mass of living matter) and play a crucial role in the ecosystem by decomposing dead organic matter into its constituent chemicals so that nutrients, such as nitrogen and carbon, can be recycled back into the environment. Estimates of the number of fungal species in the world range from 250,000 to 1.5 million. However, fewer than 100 of these species are known to cause human or animal diseases. Healthcare providers of various disciplines need to know the truth so they can educate their patients. This course provides healthcare providers with up-to-date information on the health effects of exposures to mold in the indoor environment.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education course is to provide nurses and health educators with up-to-date information on the health effects of exposures to indoor mold. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss at least two conditions that make the indoor environment favorable for the growth of mold.
  • Describe at least two adverse health effects that are unequivocally associated with exposure to molds.
  • Explain at least three ways mold can be prevented indoors.
