This Case Management Society of America (CMSA) toolkit provides guidance for front-line healthcare providers on patient-centered diagnosis and treatment adherence recommendations for their COPD patients. The tool covers care across the continuum, from defining and diagnosing COPD to adherence tools and challenges, case management approaches within different settings to successful discharge and follow up. The authors propose a COPD management program with four components: 1) assess and monitor disease, 2) reduce risk factors, 3) manage stable COPD and 4) control exacerbations. Medication management, oxygen therapy, pulmonary rehabilitation, surgical procedures and smoking cessation are all discussed in detail. A detailed case study is also included. Information on all available CMSA CMAGs can be found here.
