The course will include practical information healthcare professionals can use in their work with COPD patients. Specific attention will be given to COPD Diagnosis and Management, Disease Overview, Smoking Cessation, Spirometry, Pulmonary Rehabilitation, Oxygen Therapy, Education and Adherence, Medications and Delivery Devices, Palliative Care, Hospice and End of Life Issues.
