Accurate Diagnosis and Emerging Neutrophil Serine Protease Therapeutics for Patients with Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis

EARNed Credits


AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM



This CME program is derived from content presented at the 2022 Eastern Pulmonary Conference. The expert faculty, Dr. Gregory Tino, will first outline the pathophysiology, prevalence and radiological distribution of non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE). Current treatment guidelines and recommendations for patients with NCFBE will be reviewed and an overview of phenotyping provided. Dr. Tino will conclude with an analysis of current trial data, including a discussion of practical implications for clinicians who treat and manage patients with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.

Who Should Attend

Pulmonologists, primary care physicians, radiologists, advanced practitioners, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with NCFBE
