The role of clinicians in the fight for clean air


Make a significant contribution to helping people suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Аir pollution is the single most significant environmental risk to human health, and research suggests that long-term exposure can contribute to the development of asthma, cardiovascular disease and lung cancer.

Whilst EU policies aim to reduce exposure to air contamination by reducing emissions,the health effects of air pollution remain a public health concern worldwide - and it is inevitable that healthcare professionals will face the adverse health effects of climate change in their practices.

Healthcare professionals have an important role to play in treating patients with chronic health problems caused by air pollution.

Our Respiratory Medicine courses will enable more healthcare professionals to have the required knowledge to treat patients, develop problem-solving and clinical skills, and prepare students to take a leadership role in respiratory medicine.
