NPs are essential to the early diagnosis and treatment of COPD. Whether facing a patient at risk for developing COPD or adjusting treatment for a patient with poorly controlled COPD symptoms, NPs in clinical practice must start this important conversation. AANP, in conjunction with expert NP faculty Susan Corbridge and Corinne Young, have developed this useful tool to help NPs discuss timely diagnosis, implement appropriate treatment according to current Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) guidelines and adjust therapy for patients who are at increased risk due to infections, exacerbation or inadequate care.
