COPD for Pharmacists CPD Module

COPD is a chronic lung disease that makes it difficult to breathe and can be caused by several risk factors, such as tobacco smoking, second-hand smoke, and exposure to air pollution. People who develop COPD are at a higher risk of developing lung cancer and experiencing shortness of breath.

Pharmacists play a crucial role in the management of COPD by providing patients with the necessary medication and offering advice on lifestyle changes. They can also educate patients on the risks associated with cigarette smoke and other risk factors for COPD, as well as offer support and guidance on how to improve their quality of life. By staying up to date with the latest research and guidelines, Pharmacists can help patients with COPD achieve the best possible outcomes.
