Guidelines on managing adult bronchiectasis – lay versions now available

With the help of experts from the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the bronchiectasis patient advisory group, we have produced a new guideline on the management of adult bronchiectasis.

The guideline is based on an ERS version for healthcare professionals. The original version considered the best available evidence – randomised control trials, systematic reviews and observational studies – to answer a series of questions about managing bronchiectasis.

Our version of the guideline uses language that is easier for non-healthcare professionals to understand. It covers aspects of management including long-term treatment, physiotherapy and treatment for chest infections.

The guideline is available to download in the following languages:
