There is an increased need to address new therapeutic avenues to treat pneumonia caused by infectious agents that no longer respond to standard of care therapies alone (e.g. antibiotics). This webinar will introduce the concept of targeted immunomodulation as a means to treat pneumonia, with focus on Toll-Like Receptor agonists and aerosol delivery.
The audience will gain a better understanding of immunomodulation and targeted therapies for pneumonia.
- Nebulization/aerosol therapy
The format will be presentations and Q&A sessions.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define immunomodulation
- Describe the use of immunomodulation in the treatment of pneumonia
- List targeted delivery methods for immunomodulators
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.
