ELF is undergoing a strategic review to focus its aims on patient input into the ERS and communicating lung health news to the public.

To inform this process, a session was facilitated at the ERS Annual Congress, for 35 representatives from 21 patient organisations that work with ELF, to reflect on its current structure and activities, and discuss how patient and patient organisation involvement could be further developed.

The participants told ELF how much they value opportunities to engage with the ERS and ELF. They stated that they would like to be more involved in ERS activities and look forward to further discussions of how they can contribute to ERS congress, school, scientific and in public health campaigns.

Read the ELF strategic session report for further details of the format and feedback received from the participants.
