To breathe is to live: the importance of Respiratory Medicine at our hospitals

VGH and UBC Hospital's Respiratory Medicine Division has, with their multidisciplinary expertise, provided great patient care by delivering the right service to the right patient at the right time. The Division's vision is to continue to provide the highest level of care to their patients, promote research into innovative new strategies, resulting in an improved quality of life, helping patients lead fuller and more active lives.

Both patient care and research relating to respiratory medicine taking place at our hospitals are world-class.

One of many examples of compelling research initiatives being pursued by the Respiratory Medicine team is the occupational/environmental lung disease research led by Dr. Chris Carlsten.

Donor support is needed for several areas of patient care, training and education, and research.
