COPD Educational Strategy Development Workshop

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) convened a 2-day Education Strategy Development Workshop on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) on September 22-23, 2004, in Alexandria, Virginia. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together relevant stakeholders--COPD patients and caregivers, members of advocacy organizations, clinicians, representatives of National health organizations and coalitions, and Federal Government representatives--to identify what is currently being done to address COPD education issues and what gaps in education exist. The primary recommendation made to NHLBI at the conclusion of the workshop was to develop and implement a public awareness campaign on COPD that targets patients and those at risk as well as health care providers.
