The New Zealand Respiratory Conference is an annual event that brings together local and international experts to present on the latest respiratory topics. The conference was organised by Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ and co-hosted by Allergy New Zealand.
The purpose of the two-day conference was for health professionals to explore the current research and issues associated with respiratory and allergy health. The conference was held on 23-24 November 2017 in Auckland, NZ.
The overarching theme was "sharing the care – breathing easier" with local and international experts covering key topics in child and adult respiratory health including asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis and sleep apnoea. Experts discussed how to provide support that is community-based, family-centred and culturally relevant.
