Course details

Breathing problems are very common in people who have heart and lung conditions and some types of cancer. Breathlessness is disabling, frightening and distressing for all concerned.

The good news is that there are several interventions that can help, and this specialist Breathlessness workshop will help you develop the knowledge and skills to understand, manage and support those who are struggling with this distressing symptom.
