This workshop is a one-time class that provides an opportunity for patients to gain valuable information about COPD. A wealth of content allows someone at any stage of the disease to learn more. Patients can learn from each other, and get their questions answered by a Clinical Pharmacist or Respiratory Therapist.
Topics covered include: the disease process of COPD, the effect it has on your lungs and body, common causes of COPD, information on what inhalers do, proper inhaler technique, low impact physical exercises, and breathing techniques to optimize the amount of air that is coming in and going out of the lungs.
COPD workshop lasts for approximately 3 hours.
