Welcome

 

 

The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ is proud to bring you the biennial New Zealand Respiratory Conference (NZRC) this 5-6 November 2020, at Te Papa, Wellington.

This year’s theme is ‘Building the Foundation for Better Breathing’ as we work towards releasing the 2020 Adolescent and Adult Asthma Guidelines, the revised Child Asthma Guidelines, and the first ever New Zealand COPD Guidelines. This year’s event has been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) for 10 CME credits.

 

This year’s programme will focus on topical presentations, including asthma management in the digital realm, vaping and e-cigarettes, air pollution, coronavirus, and healthy housing. These presentations will translate the latest research and findings into relevant and actionable material, to promote clinical best practice and wrap around care for patients and their whānau. See the full programme for 2020 here.

 

The NZRC is the largest gathering or hui for professionals with an interest in respiratory health in New Zealand. Delegates from a variety of professions join us each year, including GP’s, nurses, pharmacists, specialists, educators and researchers.

Māori Health – Te Whare Tapa Whā

 

This year we will be offering a Māori Health plenary session - Te Whare Tapa Whā - chaired by Sir John Clarke – KNZM, CNZM (Ngāti Poru) on November 5.

  

This event will consist of presentations from experts across the health spectrum sharing insights, knowledge, and best practice to improve Māori health outcomes, and reduce the inequity that exists in accessing both health services and medicines in New Zealand.
