IMPROVING HOSPITAL CARE OF COPD PATIENTS: DESIGNING EUROPEAN COPD CARE BUNDLES

Thursday 9 May 2013
Royal College of Physicians, London

This event is endorsed by the ERS.

Introduction

Using the ERS COPD Audit data, this seminar will raise awareness that care across Europe is not always consistent.  A key element of the day is to turn this awareness into a desire to improve care quality using the care bundle concept as a change tool.  We plan to demonstrate the benefits of using care bundles to improve care in all countries, recognising that each country has different local situations and health care systems.  The seminar will aim to:

  • Form an Agreement that we need to improve care by reducing variability;
  • Demonstrate that clinicians have a lead role in this;
  • Show that the care bundle is an attractive tool to effect change;
  • Demonstrate to participants that we have an opportunity to design care bundles for COPD admission and discharge that provide flexibility to account for national requirements, and can do so during this seminar.
