Respiratory Patient-Carer Network
16 February 2017, 11.00am-3.30pm
International Centre for Life, Newcastle upon Tyne
The British Lung Foundation and Academic Health Science Network for North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC) would like to extend an invitation to people across the region who have experience of living with a lung condition.
Patient participation and involvement is important to the NHS and other care organisations. This respiratory network for people living with lung disease will provide you with information, ideas and an opportunity to share your experience.
On the day we’ll be covering:
* How health priorities are decided locally;
* Putting priorities into practice with local engagement;
* A ‘lung safari’ of common lung conditions and ensuring correct diagnosis;
* Spotlight on pulmonary rehabilitation and self-management;
* How to influence good respiratory care.
You may already be involved as a patient or carer representative, attend a support group, or just interested in knowing more about influencing respiratory care and finding out more about patient involvement in a relaxed, friendly environment.
To book please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07702 591569.
It is advisable to book early as places are limited.
The International Centre for Life is situated 200 metres from Newcastle Central Station and Metro and there is free car parking for delegates at nearby Times Square Car Park or free disabled parking available at the venue (must be pre-booked).
Free lunch and refreshments provided.
