Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is now one of the top three causes of death worldwide. COPD is a major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality worldwide and a common cause of referral to the respiratory physician. We discuss some of the updates and open questions from the COPD GOLD Guidelines.
By attending this webinar, the audience will gain an up-to-date knowledge on how to define COPD exacerbations, assess severity, manage exacerbations and manage long term follow-up.
- Definition of COPD exacerbations
- Understanding exacerbation severity assessment and risk of further exacerbation
- Suggested duration of antibiotic and steroid duration for exacerbation
- Post-COVID era use of tele-monitoring in COPD follow-up
- The role of “Shielding” into the future
Following this webinar, participants will be able to confidently assess severity of COPD and COPD exacerbations. They will be aware of the data behind duration of treatment for antibiotics and steroids for exacerbations. They will hear expert input on the changing face of follow up in the post-pandemic era including discussion on the role of telemonitoring and the role of shielding into the future.
Dr. Kelly will pose clinical questions to these clinical and academic experts in the field of COPD.
An application for accreditation of this webinar has been made to the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) for 1 CME credit per 1-hour attendance. If accredited, the CME credit will be granted upon attendance of at least 60 minutes during the live webinar only.
What is a webinar?
A webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting. During the webinar, you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls.
All participants will be able to hear the lecturer and see the slides throughout the presentation. As a participant you will be able to pose questions or discuss ideas with the other participants via the text chat facility and the speaker will respond to the questions via the microphone.
More information will be communicated in due course.
