The risks and benefits of topical corticosteroids and calcineurin receptor antagonists will be covered in detail and how to maximise benefits.

COPD management is important for GPs and this workshop will look at; the correct ways to use inhalers prescribed for COPD patients, including various tricks to make sure that patients are getting the drugs from the devices into their lungs; the positive and negative features of each inhaler so that the most appropriate inhaler for each patient can be chosen; and the drugs available in each inhaler and where they fit into COPD management.
