Faculty Disclosure
This course aims to develop practical skills and knowledge in the field of interventional bronchoscopy for practitioners who already have a basic level of training. Participants will be provided with further theoretical background, live demonstrations of procedures, and extensive practical sessions with advanced simulation models including animals. During the course, emphasis will be given to TBNA use (conventional, EBUS-TBNA and b-EUS), rigid bronchoscopy, combined therapeutic techniques, stent placement and bronchoscopic lung volume reduction. Participants will receive educational materials electronically prior to the course and are asked to complete and successfully pass online modules before attending the hands-on course. The maximum number of participants for this course is 24.
An application will be made to EACCME for CME accreditation of this event. The number of credits that you will receive corresponds to your attendance during the course. Please note that you need to sign the register of attendance each day to ensure that you receive the CME credits.
Educational Aims
By the end of the course, participants will be able to
• Recognise indications and contra-indications of major bronchoscopic modalities.
• Perform TBNA in major lymph node stations.
• Have knowledge of electrocautery and cryotherapy for endobronchial treatment or biopsies.
• Be familiar with rigid bronchoscopy debulking techniques and stent placement.
• Understand and practice with navigation technologies such as EBUS and electromagnetic navigation.
Target Audience
• Pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons and critical care specialists already familiar with basic bronchoscopic techniques, wishing to acquire in depth knowledge and experience of contemporary interventional bronchoscopic modalities.

Previous knowledge and experience of performing ultrasounds is not required for this course. The hands-on training will be based on the individual physician’s previous experience prior to the course, beginners as well as more experienced physicians are welcome to attend.
Course format
Online Modules
Participants are asked to complete and successfully pass online modules before attending the hands-on course. These four online modules cover an introduction, basic principles of ultrasound, focused lung ultrasound and chest sonography. Each module includes theoretical content, images, statistics, videos and self-assessment questions to facilitate learning. Participants will also be asked to complete a pre-course assessment test at the end of the modules. 80% correct answers are needed in order to pass the test. Please allow between 8-16 hours to complete the online materials.
Course
Participants will develop their practical skills by performing ultrasounds on healthy volunteers as well as patients. The practical training will be supplemented by short lectures as well as case demonstration at the bedside. At the end of the course, the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of each participant will be assessed. They will perform an ultrasound examination on a patient which typically lasts 15-30 minutes. The course content and length are in line with the EFSUMB recommendations for the theoretical training in thoracic ultrasound (level 1 & 2).
Learning Outcomes
Following this course, participants will
• have knowledge of basic ultrasound physics
• have theoretical knowledge of thoracic ultrasound in accordance with EFSUMB requirements

Faculty Disclosure
This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the major aspects of paediatric noninvasive ventilation. It will especially focus on practical training of physicians dealing with children with upper airway obstructions that can lead to severe obstructive sleep apnoea (OSAS), neuromuscular and lung diseases that require continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or noninvasive ventilation (NIV). Through practical interactive cases, participants will learn how to manage individual patients and understand which equipment (interfaces and devices) should be used for each child.
An application will be made to EACCME for CME accreditation of this event. The number of credits that you will receive corresponds to your attendance during the course. Please note that you need to sign the register of attendance each day to ensure that you receive the CME credits.
