Challenging Cases in COPD: Early Diagnosis, Management, and Exacerbation Prevention

This webinar is provided by National Jewish Health  

Respiratory Institute

This educational activity is supported by an educational grant from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP.

Webinar Overview

COPD remains a leading cause of death in the United States and each exacerbation increases the chance of mortality, yet COPD exacerbations are not generally considered as severe as a heart attack. Literature reveals that many patients with COPD are not effectively diagnosed until they are hospitalized. Early recognition, appropriate diagnosis, and effective treatment of COPD is urgent in light of the mortality, morbidity and economic consequences of the disease. This activity includes case-based scenarios that highlight key issues related to early diagnosis, exacerbation prevention, treatment of COPD, and patient-centered strategies for communication and personalized treatment selection.
