Event description

Description

Overview:

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is largely underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed in general practice. Join us for this impactful, practical 1 day Active Learning Module (ALM), developed by the Lung Foundation Australia, and designed to equip GPs with the knowledge and skills required to confidently diagnose and optimally manage this costly chronic disease and ensure best patient outcomes.

Only 40 places available. Register your place early to avoid disappointment.

Benefits of attending:

The education is designed to encourage interaction and discussion, weaving practical case studies and diagnostic and management challenges throughout.

  • Recognise the signs and symptoms of COPD and confidently confirm a diagnosis

  • Select pharmacotherapy appropriate to the severity of COPD and risk of exacerbations

  • Devise individualised strategies for non-pharmacological management and self-management

  • Develop comprehensive care plans, including an Action Plan for managing exacerbations
