COPD Online, an interactive training program for primary care nurses – Australian Lung Foundation – 22 March 2012

New online training on COPD – Now available

“In an Australian first, primary care nurses now have access to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) training, regardless of where they live. COPD Online is a new web-based interactive training program developed by The Australian Lung Foundation (Lung Foundation) especially for primary care nurses which teaches participants about COPD, how to identify and manage patients with COPD, and develop self-management plans with patients.

COPD Online has been 18 months in the making and The Lung Foundation’s Director of the COPD National Program, Heather Allan, said the training was developed for a number of reasons. “Primary care nurses have a pivotal role in driving disease management programs at general practice.  Until now, there was very little training to support that important role.  This unique ten module intensive program will support the nurse’s role in identification, diagnosis and evidence based management of their patients with COPD,” Mrs Allan said.”

COPD Online is available on The Australian Lung Foundation’s website for $250.
