Breathlessness is a symptom that causes a high level of burden for patients with chronic respiratory diseases. Breathlessness can occur in various conditions including asthma, COPD, breathing dysfunction, paradoxical vocal fold movement or inducible laryngeal obstruction, anxiety and hyperventilation syndrome. Due to the complex nature of breathlessness, multidisciplinary management is essential.
The Centre of Excellence in Severe Asthma is providing bursaries to support the professional development of nursing and allied health professionals. A limited number of bursaries are available.
Funds are available for nursing and allied health clinicians to support travel and accommodation expenses. Domestic economy airfares and a single night of accommodation in Newcastle will be supported.
