Respiratory Conference

RCPE Symposium Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh

Date: Wednesday, 7 March 2018


Venue:

Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh,
9 Queen Street,
Edinburgh
EH2 1JQ

Overview

Respiratory diseases are common and diverse, providing challenges to clinicians working in many different settings.  It has been an exciting time in recent years with many major advances in the understanding of respiratory disease and the development of new investigative techniques and therapies.This symposium provides a varied selection of topics that will illustrate how the respiratory landscape is changing.

The topics will cover exciting new therapeutic options for asthma, personalised medicine, the impact of the environment and how legislation might improve public health.

We hope our interactive session will provoke debate and understanding of bronchiectasis and the social and ethical consequences of sleep apnoea. Finally we have a state of the art session on the diagnostic and therapeutic utilities of new bronchoscopy interventions.
