Due to unforeseen circumstances, there has been a change of venue and date for the Australian Rare Lung Disease Short Course. Those displayed on this page are the correct details. 

Gain access to the most up-to-date advances in the treatment and management of rare lung diseases. This two-day short course features international and local experts in the field and connects health professionals to the latest cutting-edge knowledge and developments.

We are excited to present Professor Kevin Brown, a leading ILD expert from the National Jewish Health, Denver, Colorado. He has a particular interest in autoimmune lung diseases and will share his insights in this rapidly evolving field.

An exclusive radiology session will be held on Saturday 24 August, presenting Professor Sujal Desai, consultant radiologist from the Royal Brompton Hospital, London. Professor Desai has clinical expertise and research interests in thoracic imaging and diffuse interstitial lung disease.

Other key presentation topics will include:

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) – looking to the future
  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • Rare forms of ILD and occupational lung disease

As part of the program, the Australian Rare Lung Disease Short Course 2019 will be accepting poster and oral abstracts, with prizes awarded ($500 each) for the best clinical and scientific poster abstracts. Find out more about Abstract Registration here.

Two $500 travel grants, supported by Actelion, will also be awarded specifically for abstracts related to Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). To apply, click here.
