About the COPD Program

The COPD program promotes the use of evidence-based clinical guidelines and tools in physician practices to support diagnosis and treatment for COPD.

What does that mean? Glad you asked! It means we:

provide education materials to medical staff including clinical guidelines, flow sheets, check lists and training guides.

help create and give out patient education tools including action plans, self-management guides, instuctional guides, and "How to use your inhaled medicine" guides.

provide on-site training about the use and interpretation of spirometry, clinical guidelines, medications, device instuctions and all patient education materials.

support the work of primary care practice teams, asthma educators, care managers, hospital staff, home health, school nurses, and childcare providers.
