The presentation will provide an introduction into CBT and how it can be used in clinical practice to address difficult symptoms such as breathlessness. CBT can also be used to improve psychological difficulties such as anxiety & depression, which can have a significant impact on patients self-management skills and quality of life. Practical case studies will be used to demonstrate how effective CBT can be.
