UK CF Conference 2015
In 2015 we streamed both days of the conference for people who were unable to attend or just want to remind themselves of their favourite bits. We also filmed interviews with some of our key speakers to further explore the topics they spoke about.
Tuesday 22 September 2015
A day designed for a multidisciplinary clinical, research and academic audience. The agenda provided a broad overview of the pulmonary aspect of cystic fibrosis and gives an in-depth examination of the current state of research and clinical care for healthy lungs. View the video coverage from Day 1.
Wednesday 23 September 2015
A day designed for clinical healthcare professionals as well as those with a personal or professional interest in cystic fibrosis. The morning gave a comprehensive update on the ambitious plans of the Trust and where these sit within the evolving NHS. The core afternoon agenda looked at the issue of 'adolescence' and explores how a joined-up, multidisciplinary approach to this key life stage is crucial to effective care and treatment.
