159936 - GPCE - Exasperating exacerbations - managing the moderate to severe COPD patient

  • : Online

The prevention of exacerbations is a key focus in managing COPD patients. 1 in 2 COPD patients hospitalised due to an exacerbation may die within 4 years, and COPD is the second-leading cause of avoidable hospital admissions in Australia (2013-14). It is the fifth leading cause of death (2015). This workshop will review the latest management options and new advances in pharmacological strategies in order to prevent exacerbations in moderate to severe COPD patients.

Relevance to General Practice

The GPCE offers GP delegates over 50 topic choices over three days. The subjects span many therapeutic areas allowing GPs to self-select the topics of most interest to the individual and their practice.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the applications of the increasing diversity of COPD medications
  • Identify patients that may benefit from new management modalities
  • Adjust medication appropriately in COPD patients that remain symptomatic
