Disease Management for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Author: The National Pharmaceutical Council
Publication: January 2003
Size: 19 pages (PDF)
This bibliography of disease management and educational interventions focuses on a relatively new disease target for such programs, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In 2000, an estimated 10 million Americans were diagnosed with COPD and another 14 million were undiagnosed. The high mortality and cost associated with COPD, as well as a lack of awareness regarding the disease, are incentives to apply disease management strategies. Further education of health care providers and the public could improve the detection and treatment of COPD.
