Common challenges in primary care: Impacts of COVID-19 on chronic respiratory disease

Metro North Hospital and Health Service (MNHHS) and Brisbane North PHN invite GPs to join us and our panel of experts for an evening webinar of education and discussion on the effects of COVID-19 infection in patients with existing chronic respiratory conditions.

The panel will be discussing the approach to prevention and optimisation of COPD and asthma pre-COVID-19 infection, management strategies and risk stratification in the event of COVID-19 infection and how to identify red flags and monitor for longer term respiratory consequences of COVID-19 infections.

This GP education will be in webinar format and we will be using Slido to allow registrants to submit questions both prior to and during the event. Links to access the webinar and the Slido service will be sent out in a separate confirmatory email on registration.
