COPD Study Day

Our COPD study days have proved to be very successful for all healthcare practitioners who have a role in managing patients with COPD both in primary and secondary care. The course is based on recommendations made within the NICE Quality Standards (2011) and NICE Guideline: Management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in adults in primary and secondary care (2010).

This study day is suitable for anyone who has a role in the diagnosis or management of patients with COPD.
