The 2020 New Zealand Respiratory Conference (NZRC) was held 5-6 November 2020, at Te Papa, Wellington.

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.

The 2020 theme for the conference was ‘Building the Foundation for Better Breathing’ to celebrate the release of the 2020 Adolescent and Adult Asthma Guidelines, the revised Child Asthma Guidelines, and work towards releasing, the first ever New Zealand COPD Guidelines. This event was also endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) for 10 CME credits.

This year’s programme focussed on topical presentations, including asthma management in the digital realm, vaping and e-cigarettes, air pollution, COVID19, 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.
