Pneumologia’s workshops: how to write a scientific article Nowadays, many young doctors present interesting findings at events organized by the Romanian Society of Pneumology and international congresses, but these pieces of work rarely get to be printed as articles in a medical journal. This might be due to lack of time of the authors, lack of interest to make one's experience public, but certainly also due to the lack of knowledge on how to put the information collected in the structure of a publishable article.
Based on this observation, our Editorial College, at the initiative of Tudor Toma, started a series of workshops addressed especially to young colleagues, but also to any potential author, entitled "How to write a scientific article".
First National Conference on Interstitial Lung Diseases The Working Group for Interstitial Lung Diseases and Sarcoidosis within the Romanian Society of Pneumology, founded in 2012, achieved two essential goals in October: organising the first National Conference dedicated to the topic, and launching of the Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Interstitial Lung Diseases.
Another facet of tuberculosis The symposium "The Multidisciplinary Approach to Tuberculosis" was held in Constanta, between September 4-5, 2015 and was organised the Pulmonary Tuberculosis Division of The Romanian Society of Pneumology, together with Ovidius University in Constanta, The County Medical College and The Baylor-Black Sea Foundation. In fact, these activities have continued during the past years, with the aim to provide the "background" for scientific expertise in order to analyse this contagious disease and its implications. Actually, this symposium opened "Pandora's Box", and the other facet of tuberculosis which is on the border between specialties, and has raised a very difficult issue involving multidisciplinary teams.
High-level meeting between two professional societies A new initiative coming from the Romanian Society of Occupational Medicine, endorsed by Dr. Horatiu Moldovan, acting president of the conference, was honoured by the Romanian Pneumology Society, within the new partnership expansion policies adopted 2 years ago. The conference theme: "The radiological diagnosis of pneumoconiosis" proved to be exciting, bringing several specialties under one flag and having a renowned foreign guest, Prof. Kurt Georg HERING - Consultant at the Westfalen Clinic in Dortmund Germany. The variety of topics allowed for interesting discussions: occupational medicine and imaging specialists, pulmonologists and health care organizers, all attended different presentations in various areas.
“About smoking: from theory to public” another initiative of the Romanian Society of Pulmonology The Romanian Society of Pulmonology, an organization that has already been involved for several years in the implementation of a smoke-free law, brought together in another important initiative leaders of opinion in the field of pulmonology and cardiology, public health professionals, authorities, social life representatives and journalists, in order to introduce a mutual goal: an accurate and more effective communication of the topics regarding smoking in Romania.
