The COPD Educator Course is a three partial-day professional education course that provides continuing education hours and a thorough overview of COPD information to healthcare professionals who work with patients having a COPD diagnosis.

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 sixth leading cause of death by disease in the U.S. The good news is COPD is often preventable and treatable.

This course will include practical information healthcare professionals can use in their work with COPD patients. Specific attention will be given to the following:

  • COPD Diagnosis and Management
  • Disease Overview
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Spirometry
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation
  • Oxygen Therapy
  • Patient Activation, Education and Adherence
  • Medications and Delivery Devices
  • Reducing COPD Readmissions
  • Palliative Care, Hospice and End of Life Issues.

This course targets healthcare professionals such as respiratory therapists, internal medicine nurses, pulmonary nurses, pharmacists, and care managers.
