Catch up the learning from the PCRS Respiratory Conference 2019


The PCRS Conference Report 2019 is now online.  It contains a summary of the key clinical, service development and plenary sessions of the three day event held in Telford in September 2019.

Highlights include reports on managing breathlessness, managing cough in primary care and respiratory disease in the context of comorbidities and ageing.  There are also reports on PCRS Executive Chair Carol Stonham’s view of how the Long Term Plan could look were we able to deliver it fully and a session on SABA Guardians where speakers challenged delegates on their prescribing habits and attention to patient behaviours, and provided tools and techniques that can be used to improve asthma outcomes.

There is also a roundup of the key session in the service development stream and of the top research and best practice abstracts.

Editor Iain Small says that both for delegates who attended the conference and those who didn’t:  “There is enough learning in this report to fuel multiple clinical improvements, and keep our appraisers happy for years. More importantly, of course, there is enough information advice and experience to bring about great change to the lives of our patients, their families, and our health communities, if only we apply it.”
