Transforming respiratory medicine in the post pandemic world
Taking place on the 28–29 June, 2022 in Paris and online, the IRC Summit was a flagship event for the Coalition.
Day one of the event was open to invited attendees and registered online guests. It provided details of the concept behind the IRC in full, explained how the Coalition aims to support the transformation of respiratory care at national level and presented sessions focusing on: the current priorities in the respiratory field; the impact of COVID-19 on respiratory care; and discussed how we can progress in the post-pandemic world.
Day two was a closed session for invited attendees only. It focused on country-level respiratory strategies and national practices aiming to improve lung health in the context of (post-) pandemic challenges. Presentations from across Europe facilitated exchange of experiences, lessons learned and examples of best practices that can be taken into account or replicated in order to overcome consequences of COVID-19, boost resilience of respiratory health systems, contribute to preparedness for future pandemics and also improve chronic respiratory diseases care.
