Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Within the wide offer of congresses in the field of Pneumology, the International Workshop on Lung Health is characterised by being a medium sized conference focused on small group learning with a real interaction with the World Experts at close proximity. Participants’ feedback confirms that this format is convenient to acquire new knowledge, learn new approaches and discover new insights to be applied immediately in the daily clinical practice as soon as back at work. Every personal experience is enriched by the dialogue among generations, different cultures, clinical approaches and other national health systems. Some of the valuable relations born during the conference last over years.
Daring wisely has been one of the values of this dynamic forum and to continue this tradition and following the suggestions received from last edition attendees, we will dedicate the 6th International Workshop on Lung Health to New approaches to respiratory diseases to embrace less known pathologies, rare respiratory diseases and new methods in diagnosis and treatment. Large space and time will be dedicated to Pros and Cons, Yearly Reviews on specific topics and cases analysis as the “Clinical and Imaging Ground Round”, where participants will be challenged on solving controversial or complex real life situations.
The young generation initiatives will see the reconfirmation of the Rising Stars and Poster Awards, while the Future Leaders Tutoring programme will be furtherly developed giving to younger doctors the opportunity to interact, share and compare their own practice and experiences.
We would therefore be grateful if you may consider to attend and even more important, contribute with your personal input to the success of the educational programme on New approaches to respiratory diseases of the 6th International Workshop on Lung Health.
Looking forward to welcoming you in January in the mild-weathered city of Nice,
Francesco Blasi, Walter G. Canonica, Stefano Centanni, Johann C. Virchow, Tobias Welte
