The New Zealand Respiratory Conference (NZRC) will be taking place 5-6 November 2020, at Te Papa, Wellington. 


The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ is proud to bring you the biennial New Zealand Respiratory Conference.

This year’s theme is ‘Building a Foundation for Better Breathing’ as we work towards releasing the 2020 Adolescent and Adult Asthma Guidelines, the revised Child Asthma Guidelines, and the first ever New Zealand COPD Guidelines. This year’s event has also been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) for 10 CME credits.

This year’s programme will focus on topical presentations, including asthma management in the digital realm, vaping and e-cigarettes, air pollution, coronavirus, and healthy housing. These presentations will translate the latest research and findings into relevant and actionable material, to promote clinical best practice and wrap around care for patients and their whānau. See the full programme for 2020 here.

Alongside these presentations, we will also be hosting a Māori health workshop – Te Whare Tapa Whā.

The NZRC is the largest gathering or hui for professionals with an interest in respiratory health in New Zealand. Delegates from a variety of professions join us each year, including GP’s, nurses, pharmacists, specialists, educators and researchers. For more information on this year's conference, click here.
