There’s a lot to discuss following an COPD diagnosis…
We’ve developed a consultation guide to support discussion with new COPD patients with the help of simple visuals.
There is a patient side and an HCP side to this guide sectioned by topic (e.g. ‘your diagnosis’, ‘your symptoms’) and tabbed for easy navigation.
The view for the patients aims to engage them with important information following a diagnosis and makes it easier for them to remember key points. The HCP side includes a small image of what the patient is looking at and suggested topics which might be useful to explore with them. The content has been designed to help you to ensure they feel well-informed and ready to manage their COPD effectively.
The booklet can be used with a patient (or relative or carer) at any time, but may be of most use after first diagnosis. The content aligns with the patient booklet and self-management plan, so can act as a reminder of what’s been discussed during consultations.
