O2VERLAP is a project that will compare the effectiveness of patient-centered care methods (web-based peer coaching education and support intervention) versus reactive care, on adherence to oxygen therapies in patients diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and/or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), O2VERLAP will demonstrate the capabilities of the COPD Patient-Powered Research Network (COPD PPRN). Results from the O2VERLAP study will provide evidence to shape how care is delivered in the home for patients with COPD and OSA.
The COPD Foundation is partnering with the American Sleep Apnea Association and will engage in collaborative activities around O2VERLAP designed to create more efficient research methods, new tools and best practices for patient centered research.
