I am working with a group of healthcare professionals on a project and our goal is to make COPD education meaningful, and have more impact for people who may be new to living with COPD. Specifically, our work will be with people who have been hospitalized with a COPD exacerbation, but all feedback is welcomed.
Maybe you can remember what it felt like when you first found out you have COPD or maybe you have just recently gotten the diagnosis. What information would have been helpful to you to have soon after diagnosis?
How easy is it for you to really take in new information when you are a patient in the hospital? It doesn't seem like the ideal time to be learning, but sometimes we don't have an alternative.
We are brainstorming and want to be as thorough as possible.
Thanks for your help with this. We are hoping to make things better for patients in the future.
