The Sustainable Respiratory Care Course focuses on the relationship between human health and the climate and ecological crisis, with a focus on respiratory health. It demonstrates how the health system is vulnerable to, but also contributes to, climate change and ecological degradation, examines the specific contribution of inhalers to carbon emissions and other environmental impacts and explores how to develop a more sustainable approach to respiratory healthcare whilst maintaining or improving quality of care.
