  • Overview

    An estimated 350,000-500,000 adults are affected by bronchiectasis in the United States, and up to 90% of patients with bronchiectasis present with chronic cough. This educational activity provides a framework of treatment options for NCFBE, empowering medical practitioners to work collaboratively with pulmonary specialists and confidently proceed with a sustainable treatment plan that is evidence-based and makes sense for both practitioner and patient.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including pulmonologists, radiologists, primary care or family medicine practitioners’, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists and any other clinicians involved in the management of patients with Non-Cystic Fibrosis Bronchiectasis (NCFBE).

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Discuss epidemiological data supporting NCFBE as a clinically relevant disease that is more common than previously described
    • Identify common etiologies and the clinical presentation of this disease, emphasizing overlap with comorbid medical conditions routinely seen in clinical practice
    • Review the complex pathophysiology of how NCFBE leads to progressive decline in lung function
    • Review the current recommended diagnostic algorithm, with emphasis on the importance of early diagnosis and pulmonary referral
    • Review the current treatment options and potential future pharmaceutical options for the management of NCFBE
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.25 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
