  • Supporting patients to self-manage COPD
    Monday, March 14, 2022 · 10:30 AM GMT
    This session will be presented by Anne Rodman.

    This session will cover the importance of empowering patients to self-manage their COPD. Key factors that can affect self-management will be explored, including health literacy, health beliefs and behaviour change theories. Understanding patient education needs is vital: these could include the benefits of tobacco reduction, increasing physical activity, maintaining a healthy BMI in COPD and coping with breathlessness. Another key aspect of successful self-management is recognition of flare-ups and positive actions to take, alongside goal setting to encourage positive health behaviours.

  • Greener respiratory healthcare and inhalers
    Tuesday, March 15, 2022 · 11:45 AM GMT
    This session will be presented by Darush Attar.

    Doing the right thing clinically for individual patients must remain the primary focus of clinicians and there’s plenty we can do to on a personal level too.

    Greener respiratory healthcare that is kinder to the environment should be:
    - Patient-centred, putting patients at the heart of systems and decision-making processes so that they are more likely to adhere to appointments, prescribed medications, and self-care advice.
    - Focused on achieving and maintaining disease control including appropriate prescribing and holistic care to enable patients to understand and adhere to their prescribed regimen/s. Inhaled respiratory medications should be delivered using the inhaler with the lowest carbon impact that is appropriate for an individual and alongside safe disposal/recycle schemes.
    - Supporting a reduction in outdoor pollution and indoor air pollution (in the home or workplace and including secondhand tobacco smoke) is recognised as a priority for the prevention of respiratory disease.
  • Post pandemic holistic breathing recovery - non clinical support for breathless people
    Tuesday, March 15, 2022 · 1:00 PM GMT
    This session will be presented by Heather Henry.

    As part of post-pandemic recovery, the health and care system will be encountering even larger numbers of people experiencing chronic breathlessness.
    This session outlines the research evidence for how such people may best be supported.
    Why is that two people with the same level of respiratory disease experience differing levels of dyspnoea?
    What can be done to support them?
    How has the evidence shaped the development of a holistic breathing recovery programme in Trafford?

  • Contraception for women aged 40 and over: key considerations
    Wednesday, March 16, 2022 · 1:00 PM GMT
    This session will be presented by Dr Katie Boog.

    When do you no longer need contraception?
    What contraception is safe in individuals over 40?
    Can you use contraception alongside or instead of HRT?
    What is the advice about extended use of LARC in older individuals?

    Individuals aged over 40 have different contraception requirements because the safety profile for contraception is different to that of younger women, and contraception may alleviate or masks symptoms of perimenopause. This presentation will give you an understanding of:
    - how to assess the risk:benefit of contraceptive options in individuals over 40
    - how and when to stop contraception
    - how and when to use contraception alongside HRT
    to give you the knowledge and skills to confidently discuss these questions with your patients.
