Updated COPD Course Now Available
COPD is a major cause of morbidity and mortality and represents a substantial economic and social burden in the United States (US) and throughout the world.
People with COPD have complex needs and managing their conditions is a challenge which requires a transdisciplinary approach to provide them with optimal care. It demands coordination and integration of systems and activities across the continuum of care.
Professional practice standards which govern the professional conduct of case managers (CMs) clearly delineate the role of CMs as key members of the patient-centered transdisciplinary teams.
