Identifying and treating patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is urgent in light of the mortality, morbidity and economic consequences of the disease. CAPTURING COPD: A Team Approach to Diagnosis, Treatment and Management is a free CME/CNE activity consisting of nine 15-20 minute lessons disbursed across four main modules. These include an overview of the disease, how to effectively diagnose patients, best care practices and therapies for treating patients, and methods to ensure patient adherence. The program features patient cases with learner interaction and is presented by experts in the field of COPD, including Barry Make, MD, Bruce Bender, PhD, and Deborah Fending, RN, BSN, AE-C of National Jewish Health, and Barbara Yawn, MD, of the University of Minnesota. It is designed for primary care physicians and community pulmonologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses who are involved in the management of COPD. Learners can complete each module individually for separate credits.
