The current COVID-19 pandemic is the greatest public health challenge of our time and has significant implications for primary care. The International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) wants to support our global primary care respiratory community and provide resources that will help you understand and manage this crisis. We plan to do this virtually by launching a weekly series of clinical practice webinars and abstract presentations running for 8 weeks, starting on Saturday May 16, 2020.
These virtual clinical practice webinars are open to both the primary care respiratory academic community and all respiratory interested primary care healthcare professionals. They give us the opportunity to discuss and debate current COVID-19 challenges for primary care globally. These virtual sessions also offer a platform to the authors who successfully submitted abstracts for the postponed IPCRG 10th world conference due to take place in Dublin in May 2020, enabling them to share their work with the wider international respiratory community.
When: Saturday May 16 – Saturday July 4, 2020. Times listed below.
Participation: Open to all respiratory interested healthcare professionals, in any part of the world.
Registration: Please register on the IPCRG website. Registration for all Healthcare Professionals is free. https://www.ipcrg.org/conferences/ipcrg-2020-virtual-conference-sessions
