26 Jan: Respiratory Update 2012
A one-day seminar to bring you the latest clinical developments, guidelines and innovations in the management of respiratory disease.
Respiratory disease creates a huge and burgeoning workload for general practice so it is imperative that you keep up-to-date to ensure optimal care for patients. But picking out the key practice-changing points from the latest research, never mind from weighty documents - like the new COPD outcomes strategy and NICE quality standards - can be daunting and time-consuming.
This meeting offers a highly practical, case-based update on everything GPs need to know to improve diagnosis, management and outcomes for patients with respiratory disease
