Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

– Apply current/recommended pulmonary guidelines in clinical practice

– Perform differential diagnosis of complex clinical presentations related to pulmonary disorders

– Identify/apply current therapeutic options for specific pulmonary disorders

– Evaluate and interpret up-to-date literature relevant to clinical practice in pulmonary medicine
