Statement of Need

The burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has grown substantially in the last several decades, and while the management paradigm for COPD continues to evolve, the treatment of COPD remains inadequate. The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) consistently updates management guidelines to reflect the latest advances and inform treatment selection; however, adherence to guidelines is suboptimal. This often leads to comorbidities being under appreciated, inappropriate treatment selection, and poor communication among members of the care team.

This CME Outfitters webcast features both pulmonology and primary care physicians and utilizes an interactive, animated 3-D model of the lung to help bridge the knowledge gap regarding evolving COPD guidelines and optimal treatment.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply evidence-based treatment guidelines to treatment decisions for patients with COPD.
  • Select inhaled maintenance treatment for patients with COPD based on various factors including clinical evidence, delivery device, symptomatology, and exacerbation risk.
  • Employ multidisciplinary approaches to optimize the continuity of care between primary care practice and pulmonology clinics for patients with COPD.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE credit:

  • Describe evidence-based treatment guidelines for treatment decisions for patients with COPD.
  • Identify inhaled maintenance treatment for patients with COPD based on various factors including clinical evidence, delivery device, symptomatology, and exacerbation risk.
  • Describe multidisciplinary approaches to optimize the continuity of care between primary care practice and pulmonology clinics for patients with COPD.
