Failure to consider, recognise and appraise clinically occupational exposures as potential causes of almost any pattern of lung disease are common training and professional deficiencies among pulmonary clinicians worldwide.
Using two important and presently pressing types of occupational dust induced lung diseases as cases, attendees will be able to understand how the characteristics of the exposures, the pathophysiology and clinical presentation of these diseases, and gain an understanding of the approach to their prevention.
- Introduction by the Chair – Rafael E. de la Hoz (New York, USA)
- Coal-dust induced lung disease: resurgence in different parts of the world, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, prevention – Robert Cohen (River Forest, USA)
- Artificial stone induced lung disease: emergence in different parts of the world, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, prevention, treatment – Elizabeth Fireman (Tel-Aviv, Israel)
Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Appraise the toxicological determinants of occupational dust exposure lung injuries;
- Describe the strategies to prevent occurrence of those diseases.
This webinar has been accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP), 1 CME credit per 1-hour attendance. The CME credit will be granted upon attendance of at least 60 minutes during the live webinar only.
What is a webinar?
The webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting.
This webinar comprises of a 45-minute lecture followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer sessions. During the webinar you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls.
All participants will be able to hear the lecturer and see the slides throughout the presentation. As a participant you will be able to pose questions or discuss ideas with the other participants via the text chat facility and the speaker will respond to the questions via the microphone.
More information will be communicated in due course.
