ELF patient representatives question the experts following the ERS Congress

Before the Virtual European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress 2020, we asked patient representatives which sessions they thought sounded most interesting and useful. Patient representatives then attended those sessions and considered what questions they would like to ask the speakers. We invited the speakers and patient representatives to a ‘question and answer’ session on their specialised subjects. The first session is now available to watch on YouTube.

In this session, patient representative Rita Barriuso from Asociación de Enfermos de Sarcoidosis in Spain asks questions to Consultant Respiratory Physician Dr Omar Usmani and Expert Patient Dominique Hamerlijnck about their presentations in the symposium ‘Digital Health: A Brave New World’.
