From diagnosis to treatment… and everything in between
We’ve written a booklet with an overview of all the things your patients need to know about living with COPD, including common triggers and symptoms, and how inhalers work.
This booklet also aims to encourage patients to become actively involved in their own COPD management from diagnosis. It’s important patients get into good habits early on, adhering to their management plan from day one should help them to take control of their COPD.
The booklet can be given to any patient (or relative or carer) at any time, but may be of most use after first diagnosis. The content aligns with the new patient consultation guide and self-management so can act as a reminder of what’s been discussed during consultations.
