COPD Readmissions Summit Live Video Feed

On October 11th the COPD Foundation will convene national health service research experts, policy makers and foremost experts in COPD clinical care to learn, share and plan for the future of reducing COPD related hospital readmissions. The COPD Readmissions Summit will answer key questions such as;

  • How do we create a system that is patient centered (i.e. with attention to other comorbidities and social determinants of health) rather than disease specific (i.e. focused exclusively on COPD)
  • How do we integrate COPD best practices into existing models for reducing hospital readmissions
  • How do we assess the impact (benefits and harms) of COPD related hospital readmission reduction efforts when deployed in practice settings, rather than in controlled research settings

Not able to make it to Washington DC to participate in person?
