CloserStill Media, the organiser of Best Practice and Clinical Pharmacy Congress, has launched The Respiratory Show for the entire respiratory community to meet, learn, network, gain CPD accreditation, enhance skills, share best practice, and plan for the future.
The NHS Long Term Plan now highlights respiratory disease as a clinical priority area, giving new focus to improving delivery of care. Highlighted by the fact that lung disease is the UK’s third highest killer, but unlike, other major disease areas, mortality rates haven’t decreased in over a decade. There are proposals to provide better training for those who deliver respiratory care; better uptake and availability of pulmonary rehabilitation and provide more appropriately resourced respiratory care closer to home.
Respiratory conditions account for more than 24million GP consultations a year and are one of the UK’s highest causes of mortality. Respiratory disease kills one in four people in the UK – even more than heart disease, which is twice the EU average. GPs, nurses and clinical pharmacists are at the frontline of care in this field, with respiratory conditions the most common reason for general practice consultation; which is why being next to UK’s largest Primary Care event will suit perfectly.
The Respiratory Show will deliver an UK-wide audience of all clinicians in primary care and secondary care; built from GPs, consultants, respiratory nurse specialists, specialist and clinical pharmacists, commissioners and other key members who are responsible for the delivery of respiratory care. The event is supported by the strongest database of NHS clinicians and healthcare professionals working in respiratory care. We will have a cutting-edge agenda shaped by an advisory panel of experts in respiratory care, covering a range of themes: Allergy, Asthma, Bronchiectasis, Cough, Cystic Fibrosis, Lung Disease, Lung Cancer, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Sleep & Ventilation, Pleural / Thoracoscopy, Tuberculosis and Thoracic Surgery.
