Bronchiectasis Report Image

The below Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) position statement, updated from the 2015 guidelines for managing Australian and New Zealand children/adolescents and adults with chronic suppurative lung disease and bronchiectasis, resulted from systematic literature searches by a multi-disciplinary team of Australian and New Zealand clinicians, and also included feedback from consumers.

This document has been endorsed by the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand on 15 February 2023.

This TSANZ position statement is designed to help clinicians, health service managers, patients and families achieve the patient-oriented goals of optimising lung growth in children, preserving lung function, minimising exacerbations, optimising quality-of-life, preventing complications and disease progression and if possible, reversing early bronchiectasis.
