Respiratory medicine is a major part of our workload in general practice and an area of medicine where we can make huge positive differences to patients' lives in primary care.  However, it can also be an area which can be challenging in terms of changing guidelines and a bewildering array of inhaler medications. We hope that by the end of the session you will feel more confident in facing up to these challenges.

This year's conference is led by Dr Noel Baxter, a GP and clinical commissioner for NHS Southwark in Southeast London.

Learning Objectives:

1) Diagnosis starting with:

  • Breathlessness 
  • Chronic cough 
  • A Monday surgery in January and how we might reduce this predictable burden 
  • There is no diagnosis until the patient knows what it is, where it came from and what will happen next

2) Focus on respiratory tests:

  • The role of a general practice clinician - less doing more evidence gathering and decision making
  • The role of the service manager and commissioner 

3) Treating respiratory infections from nose to alveoli:

  • Acute rhino sinusitis 
  • What is a URTI 
  • What is acute bronchitis 
  • What is an LRTI 

4) What if it isn’t an infection, COPD or asthma? 

  • Knowing when to ask for help and clues to help you 
  • Reviewing your registers, where to look 

5) A holistic and high value approach to COPD treatment:


6) A pragmatic approach to supporting people to live with asthma: 


7) Supporting the frightened breathlessness person when the chest and cardiac physicians have run out of options. Coordinating for your patient what we know works :
