COPD Checklist

My COPD Checklist is a new resource which is designed to assist patients to best manage their Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). If they are unable to answer yes to all of the questions, they should make an appointment with their health professional to discuss that particular issue. The checklist covers the essential areas of managing COPD such as diagnosis confirmed by spirometry, having a COPD Action Plan and more.
