This workshop will provide an overview of the clinical skills required to support respiratory patients to manage their condition and maximise the patient's quality of life. These events are very 'hands on' and for this reason are limited to a maximum of 20 participants.

Pharmaceutical companies may have provided financial support for the cost of the venues and subsistence, the trainers and materials used, but have had no influence or input into the content of the meetings or materials.
