About the event

The clinical impact of COVID-19 has been particularly challenging with respect to respiratory health.

In this webinar, a Consultant Pharmacist-led respiratory pharmacy team described their roles both in acute care and across the interface with primary care colleagues.

Why it’s important

Having an understanding of how the pandemic has changed the way respiratory services are provided will help you support your patients.

What was covered

The webinar provided an overview of respiratory pharmacy pre-, during and in the recovery phase from COVID, with some excellent insights and tips for practice.
