The 2nd COPD Foundation Readmissions Summit Video Archives
In March 2015, the COPD Foundation gathered more than 100 of the field’s most invested experts in Washington, D.C. for the Foundation’s 2nd COPD Readmissions Summit. Participants were authorities in COPD who included case managers, social workers, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physicians, respiratory therapists and government agency and health systems leaders – and of course the Foundation’s most knowledgeable stakeholders: patients. Their challenge? Change the status quo in hospital readmissions to improve health outcomes for individuals with COPD.
Over two days of patient-focused discussions that included plenary sessions, educational presentations, small breakouts and consensus presentations, speakers and attendees tackled a variety of topics central to successful readmissions reduction, including:
- Clarifying care team roles and responsibilities for transitions of care,
- Empowering the patient with COPD,
- Employing innovation in everyday approaches to COPD care,
- Navigating the health care reform landscape, and
- Moving from compartmentalized to continuous care.
These productive sessions produced lively discussion and question and answer sessions as well as a new set of recommendations for next steps in improving the care for all with COPD.
