UKIG Standards for Inhaler Technique


The UK Inhaler Group (UKIG), a coalition of not-for-profit organisations and professional societies, recognises that many people find inhalation of medicines complicated and difficult leading to sub-optimal use and effect. It is vital that healthcare professionals have the skills to assist patients, yet many practitioners lack the necessary knowledge and skills relating to inhaler technique to support them.

As a result, UKIG has developed a set of standards and competencies for healthcare practitioners to enable them to work with patients to optimise technique and maximise the benefit of the medication. This site shows the standards in an easily accessible way.

Introduction to COPD



Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major public health problem. Introduction to COPD will provide nurses with the knowledge to manage patients with COPD throughout their journey.

This free resource aims to increase nurses’ confidence and competence and enhance their understanding of this complex disease.

In order to maintain a high level of service to our students we have purged inactive accounts from the Intro to COPD website.

If you are experiencing difficulties in logging in to https://www.introtocopd.org/ please attempt to recreate your account.

You will then be able to progress through the course and download your certificate upon completion.

Further support can be obtained by emailing sitesupport@educationforhealth.org
