The ERS School web platform
The ERS School website was launched in 2000, and has been continuously developed and expanded (figure 1). It boasts peer-reviewed presentations, journal articles and guidelines as well as a growing range of videos, interactive clinical cases and online courses. The material is organised by topic into ‘educational tracks’ and users can personalise the site according to their field of interest. Many of the materials on the site are accredited as CME activities by the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology, and users can earn CME credits (recognised in most European countries) by viewing or taking part in them.
