|Speakers||Laura Rush, Respiratory Lead Practice Nurse, Cranleigh Gardens Medical Centre Laura is a practice nurse with a specialist interest in respiratory care. A large part of her clinical role involves the diagnosis and management of the more complex patients with respiratory conditions, reducing referrals to secondary care. Laura sits on the Primary Care Respiratory Society (PCRS) Education Committee and was a contributor to the PCRS Fit to Care document which sets out standards of respiratory care and the skills, knowledge and training required by healthcare professionals to be working at that standard, something she is passionate about. Laura has been a part of various steering committees and has published an article on spirometry interpretation. Laura’s passion for improving care for respiratory patients including early diagnosis and appropriate management prompted her to share her knowledge and enthusiasm through a role in teaching to motivate and inspire other healthcare professionals to deliver optimum care. Laura has her own training business and runs a local respiratory interest group in Somerset. More recently Laura has become a trainer for Education for Health.|
