The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Patient: Acute to Post-Acute Integrated HealthCare is organized by Ganesco Inc. and will be held on Apr 20, 2018 at Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center, Grapevine, Texas, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and other healthcare practitioners interested in or currently providing diagnosis, therapy or management to patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
New therapeutic developments and evidence-based treatments for COPD change over time. Treatment controversies and misunderstandings often present as a result; accordingly, strategies and treatment guidelines require updates. The worsening burden of COPD calls for critical review and assessment of the different interventional efficacies aimed at case finding, diagnosing COPD, controlling COPD symptoms, preventing exacerbations and maintaining the quality of life. Continuing education of health professionals involved in the management of COPD may fill these existing efficacy practice gaps.
This program will initiate practice changes in the diagnosis, therapeutics, management of COPD patients in acute to subacute environments so as to improve patient quality of life.
Conference Objectives are :
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
• Review of the current evidence for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of patients with COPD
• Define COPD acute exacerbations
• Review COPD and comorbidities via diagnosis and treatment in the hospital
• Discuss integral transition from acute to post-acute care
• Describe home treatment and follow up
• List practical and visible care pathways from hospital to home/post-acute care
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
