Inaugural King’s John Price Paediatric Respiratory Conference

24 – 25 March 2015

Bill Whimster Suite, Weston Education Centre, King’s College Hospital London

The Paediatric Respiratory team at King’s College Hospital London are delighted to welcome you to the inaugural John Price Paediatric Respiratory Conference.

The theme for the first day of the conference this year will be “What’s new, but controversial”. We aim to discuss the latest evidence in the management of a diverse range of paediatric respiratory problems, particularly addressing difficult and controversial issues. The theme for the second day of the conference will be “Practical updates”. It will cover difficult paediatric respiratory issues met in primary and secondary care and try to offer some practical solutions.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Education and Training Board for South London (HESL) for their support. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our speakers for their participation and sharing their knowledge. We hope you enjoy the event and take away valuable learning experiences that you can apply in your practice.
