Accredited training for GPs on the latest in COPD management

COPD remains a chronic disease which is largely underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed. We try to make it easy for GPs to keep abreast of the latest information around the diagnosis and management of patients with COPD.

Lung Foundation Australia has developed an Active Learning Module (ALM) for General Practitioners (GPs) to increase their knowledge, confidence and skills in the diagnosis and management of patients with COPD.

This is a reminder to sign up for one of the upcoming workshops:

The learning outcomes for this ALM include:

  • Recognising the impact of COPD in the Australian community
  • Identifying patients at risk and confirming a diagnosis of COPD
  • Explaining effective non-pharmacotherapy and pharmacotherapy interventions for the management of COPD
  • Developing a comprehensive plan of care with a patient, including a COPD Action Plan for managing exacerbations
  • Utilising evidence based resources to assess and manage patients with COPD
