EMBARC have collaborated with NTM-NET to provide educational material on Non-tuberculous mycobacterial lung disease (NTM-LD).

A slide repository for NTM-LD and bronchiectasis has been created and is intended to serve as a comprehensive multi-disciplinary educational resource for all who are involved in the management and treatment of patients with NTM-LD and bronchiectasis across Europe. This resource comprises more than 200 slides for educational purposes and can be downloaded and used for educational purposes to learn about NTM-LD risk factors and management.

The slide collection is based on published literature complemented by the authors and their recommendations from clinical practice. The repository is intended as a living document, which will be updated and complemented with emerging data as these become available. For futher information about NTM please visit http://www.ntm-net.org/index.php
