Webinar: Reducing the Environmental Impact of Inhaler Prescribing

Friday, July 10, 2020 - 13:00 - 14:00

Free webinar from Greener Practice & RCGP

Inhalers for asthma and COPD have a disproportionate climate impact due to the propellant gases found in metered dose inhalers. In this webinar Dr James Smith will examine current inhaler prescribing patterns and why changing these in the UK is so important in our efforts to address climate change. 

He will discuss what actions GPs can undertake to address this at the individual, practice and CCG level. He will also reflect on the media response to the paper he published with colleagues on this subject in 2019 and consider how this might inform our future actions.
