COPD project continues to roll out in 2018

Following on from successful events held in 2017, Brisbane North PHN is again organising a series of educational workshops in 2018 for GPs and practice nurses as part of the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) project.

GPs are invited to participate in an active learning module to hear the latest in COPD diagnosis and management and work toward better outcomes for their patients.

In 2017, the COPD project:

  • secured 15 general practices to participate in a six month (October 2017 – April 2018) COPD clinical audit
  • hosted a clinical audit evening
  • held a nursing network meeting on COPD
  • ran two Saturday workshops for practice nurses on COPD.

In 2018, the COPD project will deliver:

  • satellite pulmonary rehabilitation
  • spirometry training
  • nursing education
  • GP active learning modules (see table).
