A recent ERS Monograph publication presents a comprehensive guide for clinicians on the assessment and management of Complex Breathlessness. In this webinar, the co-editors and a panel of expert contributors will discuss the concept of ‘complex’ or unexplained breathlessness and why this is an important and relevant issue for respiratory clinicians. The panel discussion will cover the key conditions that are often overlooked in this setting, factors underpinning breathlessness and how we can assess and characterise this problem.
- To inform the respiratory community about the concept of complex breathlessness and the type of conditions that may cause diagnostic uncertainty or remain overlooked.
- To discuss the tools used to assess and measure breathlessness.
- To describe the factors that may underpin breathlessness and how clinicians may approach and optimise the consultation process in this area.
- Understand the history and challenges of assessing unexplained breathlessness
- Describe the test modalities that may be used to characterise breathlessness
- Identify factors leading to breathlessness.
- Panel discussion session with 15 minutes Q&A.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Approach the consultation of the breathless patient with improved insight and confidence.
- Be increasingly aware of the differential diagnosis in this context.
- Approach management, with consideration for the various factors relevant in driving breathlessness.
An application for accreditation of this webinar has been made to the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) for 1 CME credit per 1-hour attendance. If accredited, the CME credit will be granted upon attendance of at least 60 minutes during the live webinar only.
What is a webinar?
A webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting. 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.
