CHEST immersion training will provide comprehensive disease state knowledge of bronchiectasis including underlying pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment options, management, and co-morbidities. Training will include a 3-part webinar series, a 1 day in-person and spaced learning in between. The program will focus on bronchiectasis patient experiences with a focus on patient centered care. We will take a deep dive into the intricacies of bronchiectasis providing participants with an understanding of its etiology, risk factors and underlying mechanisms as well as current clinical guidelines for diagnosis, management and treatment. It will also give an overview of current obstacles to both diagnosis and care of these patients that are encountered in the clinical setting.

CHEST will create a learning experience for participants that leverages the principles of adult education theory. Adult learners often have diverse backgrounds, learning styles, and professional goals. Content for the bronchiectasis emersion training will be presented in a variety of engaging modalities including self-directed learning and active engagement to enhance engagement, knowledge acquisition and content retention.
