Scientific Program

Building on the success of past conferences, the  scientific program is inter discipinary and designed to appeal to clinicians, scientists and educators in the respiratory field.  It promotes discussion of the most significant developments in clinical practice, research and education and enhances inter-professional interactions.

At the end of the conference, attendees will be better able to:

- Apply updated, evidence-based scientific information to promote lung health in patients with respiratory disease;

- Collaborate with other respiratory stakeholders, through communication, information-sharing, networking and partnership-building;

- Translate and integrate recent clinical research on the prevention, management and treatment of respiratory diseases.

The scientific program will present cutting-edge concepts and current research from a variety of perspectives. A wide range of topics will be addressed as they relate to adult and pediatric respiratory health, asthma, COPD, pumonary rehabilitation, critical care, sleep medicine and much more!  This year's program will introduce new sessions targeting early career professionals as well as sessions featuring interactive self-assessment and simulation.

All plenary and selected concurrent session will offer simultaneous translation.  The scientific program will offer delegates the opportunity to increase their knowledge of the breadth of ongoing research and program evaluation activities in respiratory health.  Themed concurrent sessions will provide a cross-sectional appeal for our diverse audience.  Time has been incorporated into the program for networking and partnership-building opportunities, and the conference will be flanked by society, committee, scientific and other affiliated meetings.  The CRC program offers an unopposed moderated poster session.
