Needs Statement

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is responsible for one death every four minutes in the United States and is now the third leading cause of death. COPD is also responsible for a significant number of potential preventable hospital readmissions, which result from poor transitions of care caused by breakdowns in communication, education or accountability. This presentation will address the elements of successful care transitions for patients with COPD.

Target Audience

This activity was designed to address the educational needs of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and nurses.

Objectives

• Discuss the impact of COPD on hospitalization
• Describe the elements of successful care transitions
• Evaluate the value of patient self-management in COPD
