The COPD Educator Institute Course, through the American Lung Association in Vermont, provides healthcare professionals with a thorough overview of COPD information.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, is a chronic lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. The disease is increasingly common, affecting millions of Americans, and is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. The good news is COPD is often preventable and treatable.
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.
The upcoming COPD Educator Institute will be held at Vermont Technical College in Williston.
