GOLD Guidelines Update

19th November 2019

Around this time every year, the Global Initiative for Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) publishes its annual update on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of COPD. Last week the 2020 guidelines were published.

Education for Health’s COPD Clinical Lead Bev Bostock commented:

“The GOLD group continues to redefine best practice in supporting people with COPD to optimise their quality of life and once again the 2020 have new nuggets of information on diagnosis and treatment.”

 You can find the latest guideline here: https://goldcopd.org/gold-reports/

These changes will be reflected within both the contact teaching and eLearning that we provide as part of our COPD courses.
