Patient Education

PURR educational brochures

The PURR educational brochures provide information and instructional guides prepared by members of our healthcare team and our community partners in care. Topics are related to various lung diseases and are arranged in alphabetical order. To access individual files, please click on the first letter of the topic that you want to read about, and then select your topic of interest.

Patient education videos

Videos presentations by FIRH Faculty about lung-related topics are available to you to view. Also, videos on various topics were created for the "McMaster Demystifying Medicine Seminar Series."  This translational seminar series is designed to help increase the understanding of how advances in biology can be applied to human disease and include presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis and therapy in the context of major disease problems and current research.
