What is an online surgery?
Also called a webinar, it’s an online presentation from an expert on a relevant respiratory topic that you can tune in to and watch from the comfort of your own computer. These monthly events are offered free giving participants a unique opportunity to find out more about particular topics of interest from an expert.
We’ve covered such topics such as pneumonia, bronchiectasis and exercising with a lung condition. During the presentation you can type in questions that the expert host will answer at the end of their presentation.
These questions are viewed only by the host and presenter, and will always be treated anonymously. While the surgery is available online following the event, as a member you have the added benefit of being able to ask questions directly to our expert host.
“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the webinar. It was a rare opportunity to hear a talk on bronchiectasis and wonderful to have been able to get involved from the comfort of home! Keep up the good work BLF”
Good to know
Our online surgeries are presented by a named and trusted individual on behalf of the BLF. For this reason, and because of the ‘live’ nature of the content, they are not included in the scope of the BLF’s Information Standard certification. However, the production of online surgeries does follow the principles of the Information Standard. The surgeries are relevant to patients and carers, based on the most up to date information and evidence, and are presented by experts. For more information about the Information Standard and the BLF’s online surgeries, please contact us.
