It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate, and more importantly to actively contribute to the 3rd European Bronchiectasis Workshop (EBROW 2023).
Following the “on going” success of the World Bronchiectasis Conference series (Milan 2017, Virtual Edition 2020, Prague 2022) attended – every edition – by more than 400 participants from all over the World with a great contribution by participants in terms of presented abstracts (90 per edition in average), and the 1st and 2nd European Bronchiectasis Workshop in Vienna in July 2019 and Virtually on July 2021, where more than 200 specialists met to face and discuss the most relevant arguments of the area, the 3rd European Bronchiectasis Workshop will be realized on February 23rd – 25th, 2023 at Humanitas University in Pieve Emanuele in the Milan area.
As it has been shared during the previous editions of the European Workshop the small but very committed European community of scientists and experts in the field, confirms that bronchiectasis and its comorbidities are still often misdiagnosed and not appropriately treated. Epidemiology is still incomplete and country dependent, while diagnostic tools and definition of the pathology has progressed a lot. Management is still far from being uniform and completely satisfactory while specific treatments are still not available also if new therapies should become available in the next years.
In this rapidly changing panorama it is crucial to gather the experts to discuss of these and other important evolutions and to continue to improve the knowledge and management of this long-term condition, especially in the post – covid scenario and within the complex and diverse healthcare systems active in Europe.
A focus is also needed on new researches and case studies to help the small but active community of specialists working in the field to share knowledge and continue the networking activities that have produced in the recent years so many improvement in the knowledge and in the management of the disease, always keeping our focus on the patient wellbeing and quality of life.
Joining forces, exchanging clinical experiences, sharing data and ideas, enlarging the network of active experts and investigators in the field of NTM & Bronchiectasis are the main goals of the workshop.
Hence, we would be delighted if you may consider in attend and actively contribute to the 3rd European Bronchiectasis Workshop.
