Bronchiectasis is a disease of the airway becoming inflamed, irreversibly dilated, and impacted with mucus. Impaired mucociliary clearance may be a source of recurrent infections and worsening of the disease process. This program will especially focus on key gaps in health care providers’ awareness of and ability to assess NCFBE, including the disease burden, unmet needs, associated patient risk factors, comorbidities, and approaches to reduce delay in diagnosis. Learners will become more adept at assessing patients’ natural history, clinical course, and disease progression.

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

  • Review bronchiectasis burden, etiologies, and best practices evaluation strategies.
  • Describe the clinical course and progression of bronchiectasis.
  • Describe the role of neutrophilic inflammation in patients with bronchiectasis.
  • Identify current and emerging treatments for patients with bronchiectasis.
