The dissemination of knowledge, and medical and public education constitute a fundamental objective of the ERS mission; and the ERS School aims to provide excellence in respiratory medicine education. In 2005, the ERS School started the very ambitious HERMES (Harmonised Education in Respiratory Medicine for European Specialists) project. Since then, seven HERMES Task Forces have formed to standardise training and education within different specialties of respiratory medicine. To support the implementation of various educational
activities, the ERS has produced a series of Handbooksas educational tools, with the ERS Handbook of Respiratory Medicinebeing the first textbook to be launched in 2010.
Starting in 2007, the Paediatric Respiratory Medicine Task Force, using a formal consensus process and working with numerous experts throughout Europe, developed a HERMES syllabus (description of the competencies required) and a HERMES curriculum (description of how competencies should be taught, learned and assessed), as well as a voluntary European examination in paediatric respiratory medicine. With the paediatric HERMES project now well underway, it is an opportune time to publish an ERS Handbook of Paediatric Respiratory Medicineto provide a comprehensive update for specialists within this field of respiratory medicine. The content of this Handbookfollows the HERMES syllabus and curriculum to provide a compact, state-of-the-art textbook, with each of the sections prepared by senior specialists and clinical experts in the field.

We hope that this Handbookwill not only inform our trainees but also provide an easily accessible and comprehensive update for colleagues at all levels of seniority across paediatric respiratory medicine. Thus, this educational tool is intended to make a significant contribution to increasing the standards of training in paediatric respiratory medicine throughout Europe and, ultimately, to improving the care of children with respiratory disease.

Eight years ago, the ERS School started a very ambitious project to harmonise education in respiratory medicine for European specialists (HERMES). A preliminary survey among 29 European countries showed considerable variation in postgraduate training. Based on these findings, the ERS School developed a range of consensus documents: a core syllabus describing the competencies required, a curriculum of recommendations indicating how competencies should be taught and learned, an accreditation methodology for training centres, and a voluntary European examination to assess whether specialists have acquired the knowledge-based component of competence. The Handbook, together with a vast array of educational material, such as lectures, articles published in Breatheand the European Respiratory Monograph, and other lectures and courses, all available on the ERS School website, together comprise an unrivalled educational resource for anyone preparing for the European Examination in Adult Respiratory Medicine.

The first edition of the ERS Handbook of Respiratory Medicinewas published in 2010 with the aim of providing state-of-the-art summaries in all areas of respiratory medicine. This second edition of the Handbookhas been extensively peer review and revisited, and includes new sections on
• cytology of the lung
• HRCT of the chest
• long-term ventilation
• opportunistic infections in the immunocompromised host
• the pharmacology of asthma and COPD
• HRCT in the diagnosis of interstitial lung disease
• pathology and molecular biology of lung cancer
• palliative care
The Handbookis a comprehensive, easily accessible source of the essentials of respiratory medicine for senior medical staff requiring revalidation, and nursing and allied healthcare professionals at all levels who wish to keep their knowledge up to date. All readers can be assured that as they set sail to manage patients across the spectrum of respiratory disorders, they are armed with the best information, access to multiple-choice questions to check their knowledge, and a source guide for more in-depth study.
