Support for COPD patients being discharged from hospital


Posted on 30 April 2020 (Permalink)

The AHSN Network is promoting work that supports people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), who are at increased risk from coronavirus.

Acute hospital trusts are being encouraged to deliver all appropriate elements of the COPD discharge bundle for patients admitted to hospital with COPD. Discharge plans can assist patients with managing their condition at home and reduce readmissions.

The network website collates a number of resources, including links to organisations providing updates relevant to patients and health and care professionals. For further details, click here.
