COPD Pharmacist Workshop | Echuca
June 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the second leading cause of avoidable hospital admissions. With this in mind, the importance of engaging with patients around their symptoms and providing them with the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their own lung health is essential. Early intervention and optimal management can reduce the rate of lung function decline and lead to better health outcomes for patients with COPD.
This half-day comprehensive workshop tailored to pharmacists will enhance your clinical understanding of COPD with focuses on non-pharmacotherapy interventions, COPD screening, COPD medications and inhaler devices and an emphasis on a pharmacist's invaluable role in COPD detection and management.
Note - PSA is currently seeking accreditation for this activity. This activity may attract up to 3.5 hours of Group 2 CPD credits (or 7 CPD credits) suitable for inclusion in an individuals pharmacist's CPD plan.
