Current Trends in Respiratory Diseases: Updates for the Primary Care Physician

Overview

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and rarer lung disorders—including interstitial lung disease (ILD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis—have significant associated morbidity and mortality. Because of this, research into new therapies for these diseases is expanding, and novel treatments are being introduced to relieve the burden of these conditions among millions of patients.

As the role of primary care clinicians in a variety of disease states continues to evolve and expand, it is vital that they stay up-to-date on education surrounding current trends in the area. This half-day virtual summit with expert faculty is the ideal platform to close knowledge gaps in a variety of respiratory diseases for the primary care clinician. The activity will provide information on risk factors in pulmonary diseases, diagnostic criteria for rare respiratory diseases, and available and emerging treatment options to manage those diseases.

Benefits of Attending

  • Learn from faculty experts about COPD-asthma overlap
  • Practice skills with case-based conversations about diagnosing and treating pulmonary disorders
  • Know when and where to refer patients with rare forms of pulmonary disease
  • Learn about new treatments and their mechanisms of action
