About COPD eLearning

Relevance to General Practice

COPD is a common chronic condition and GPs manage patients with COPD on an increasingly regular basis. 1 in 7 people aged over 40 years have COPD and half of the people experiencing symptoms currently don't have a diagnosis. COPD is one of the leading potentially preventable hospital admissions in Australia. The module provides an overview of COPD including causes and symptoms, the impact on the individual and community as well as the role of primary care in the management.
