The course is mainly intended for practising respiratory physicians (and occupational physicians) who do not have a large experience in occupational asthma.
Target audience  Show

Educational aims

It has been estimated that work may contribute to the origin of asthma in about 15% of adult asthmatics. However, clinicians often find it difficult to assess possible work-related factors in their patients. The course will focus on the recognition, clinical diagnosis and management of work-related airways disease.

This three-day residential course will help participants:

  • to recognise occupational asthma in individual patients
  • to diagnose occupational asthma and other work-related airways disease in patients
  • to improve their practical skills needed to approach patients with possible occupational asthma
  • to know the most important causes of occupational asthma
  • to manage their patients with work-related airway disease
