Update your COPD skills and share best practice with this CPD accredited course
This COPD refresher package is designed for health and care professionals who manage people with COPD, who wish to refresh their skills and implement quality improvement initiatives.
Led by an experienced clinical specialist and facilitator, these highly interactive sessions will enable you to update your clinical practice by:
- Discussing and reviewing best practice models
- Understanding COPD phenotypes
- Pharmacological treatment strategies – initial and follow up
- Exacerbations – is it or isn’t it?
- The importance and techniques for supported self-management
This is a series of two 2 hour facilitated online workshops with research and quality initiatives to be undertaken between sessions. It combines group discussions, peer review and best practice development. These sessions are highly interactive, based on the specific needs of the individuals and group; led by an experienced facilitator and clinical specialist.
Familiarisation of national guidance along with any local formularies and guidelines will be an asset.
Delivery: Facilitated online group sessions – two, two hour sessions with research to be undertaken between sessions. Attending both sessions of this refresher equates to four hours of CPD activity. Certificates will be issued for courses starting on or after 1 September 2021.
