Programme

An inspirational programme designed by multi-disciplinary respiratory primary care experts

Building on the success of previous conferences, the 2017 programme challenges and supports you to think about how you work in partnership with your patients and offer them tools / resources to help them to take action and responsibility for their condition - supporting lifelong improvement in their overall well being as well as their respiratory health.

The programme is suitable for all members of the practice respiratory team, as well as community teams, integrated care clinicians, clinical commissioners and researchers.

In addition to thought-provoking, entertaining keynote plenaries, including the ever-popular case-based Grand Round session and a new Respiratory Dragons Den, there are four streams of sessions allowing delegates to tailor their conference experience to their own educational needs. There is also a series of high quality satellite sessions developed in conjunction with our pharmaceutical company sponsors.

Sessions include:

  • Clinical symposia - focussed on getting the fundamentals of care right and looking beyond the consultation
  • Service development sessions - featuring innovative case studies and examples and focussing on inspiring sustainable change
  • Cutting edge, 'real world' research presentations, run in conjunction with npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine
  • Thought-provoking, entertaining keynote plenaries - including the ever-popular case-based Grand Round session and a new Respiratory Dragons Den
  • Interactive, practical workshops run in conjunction with Education for Health, offering an opportunity to enhance key consultation and clinical respiratory skills

Plus high quality satellite sessions developed in conjunction with our pharmaceutical company sponsors
