These webinars are designed for healthcare professionals who see patients with respiratory problems and would benefit from an overview of the diagnosis and management of COPD – one of the most costly diseases for acute care in the NHS today, and an area where UK mortality rates remain considerably higher than the European average.

Informal lectures and interactive discussions led by expert practising clinicians will outline the condition, the complexities and the basic management of COPD as well as the underpinning strategies and guidelines. e.g. the recent COPD Clinical Outcomes strategy, NICE and other international guidelines.
