About the conference

COPD causes around 23,000 deaths in England each year, with one person dying from the condition every 20 minutes!

PULMONARY REHABILITATION should be a core component of the overall management of all patients officially diagnosed with COPD and other chronic respiratory conditions resulting in disabling breathlessness.

PULMONARY REHABILITATION is an essential option available within a wider, comprehensive respiratory pathway. There is sound evidence on the benefits of pulmonary rehabilitation and emerging evidence that pulmonary rehabilitation may make an impact on secondary care health utilisation. Research studies have shown that pulmonary rehabilitation can reduce mortality, reduce hospital admissions, reduce inpatients hospital days, reduce readmissions, reduce number of home visits, improve health-related quality of life in COPD patients after suffering an exacerbation

This year our one-day conference on PULMONARY REHABILITATION, chaired by Rachel Garrod, Consultant Respiratory Physiotherapist, will offer an exciting programme, which will update you on latest developments in different components of Pulmonary Rehabilitation. The variety of topics will cover areas for physical training, disease education, and nutritional, psychological and behavioural intervention, as well as update you on the latest BTS guidelines.

This conference will be held on the 28th of November 2013 at the Danubius Hotel in St. Johns Wood, London; and is a must for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, counsellors, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians, respiratory physicians, and respiratory nurses.

Topics will include

  • British Thoracic Society Guidelines on PR- What's new for us?

  • Implementation of early PR post exacerbation

  • Neuromuscular electrical stimulation as an adjunct to pulmonary rehabilitation

  • Management of patients with oxygen needs - Where are we now?

  • Latest thinking around co-morbidities with COPD

  • Recent advances in pharmacological treatments for COPD

  • Psychological considerations for patients with COPD

  • Nutritional considerations for patients with COPD

  • Motivation and lifestyle management

Plenary sessions will be interspersed with questions and answer sessions and panel discussions. The meeting represents a valuable opportunity to network, share knowledge and ideas, and consider collaborative projects.
