Only 2 weeks to go until the 10th IPCRG World Primary Care Respiratory Conference 6-8 May 2021

22 April, 2021

Dear HIFA Friends

We’ve nearly completed all speaker rehearsals for the 10th IPCRG online World Conference, and it really is going to be a great programme!

Do take 5 minutes to look at the programme and to register - remember all registrants will be able to vieww sessions on demand until November 2021 and it has been approved by the Irish College of General Practitioners for 21.5 hours of CPD (Continuing Professional Development).


Delegate fees have been substantially reduced to make the conference affordable to all and we have a great delegate list from all over the world, including practising clinicians, primary care academics and respiratory leaders.

Luke Clancy, architect of the smoking in public places ban in Ireland kicks off the meeting together with Mehmet Ungan, President of WONCA Europe.

We finish with the newly appointed Medical Officer at the World Health Organization responsible for Chronic Respiratory Diseases, Sarah Rylance, discussing universal access to respiratory care.

We have 150 ePosters, selected from the best primary care respiratory abstracts submitted to the conference. The online poster showcase will allow you to view all the posters accepted and to discuss these online with the poster presenters. IPCRG is exhibiting its full range of resources in the virtual exhibition together with industry and our partner organisations

So, take five minutes to register and to share this messages with your colleagues!

There are a limited number of bursaries available if you are an ePoster author and from a low- or middle-income country. Please contact for further information. Similarly, there are special rates for Irish Practices to attend as a group, so please get in touch.
