Conference Programme

With so many complex and varied areas in the paediatric respiratory field to discuss, the Conference has evolved greatly over the years. We constantly review the feedback of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors and volunteers to ensure that the standard of the Conference and the variation of sessions is as high quality as it can possibly be.

Join our online conference to continue your learning and gain insight and knowledge of the many important issues our profession faces.

Dowload the full programme below.

It is the passion of those involved in the Conference that truly makes it a standout event and one not to be missed. The enthusiasm of our faculty for sharing their knowledge, the delegates for the eagerness to learn, constantly evolve and share their experiences with peers and our abstract entrants and poster presenters for sharing their findings with attendees, is what is at the heart of the Conference.

The event is a coming together of all these people, united by the common purpose of improving respiratory care for our young patients.
