  • Organised by Respiratory Medicine

In this webinar,  we will hear from the international renowned  COPD expert, Professor Wedzicha, about the impact of COVID-19, both on individual patients and on the healthcare system.

COPD admissions rates appear to have dropped and we need to understand how we can care for COPD patients, both in primary and secondary care, given that they are at high risk from the infection.

Professor Wedzicha will share her own experiences of treating COPD patients with COVID-19, as well as her thoughts on how we can structure COPD services in the post-COVID environment.  The learning objectives will be as follows:

  • To understand the clinical impact of acute COVID-19 infection on COPD patient
  • To understand the care requirements for COPD patients following COVID-19 infection
  • Discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on delivering COPD services in both primary and secondary care. 

A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with CPD credit(s) will be issued to those joining the webinar live. Certificates of attendance for CPD will be automatically issued after 7 days, but only where a delegate watches the webinar live in its entirety.
