INSPIRED COPD Outreach Program

The INSPIRED COPD Outreach Program (TM)

INSPIRED - Implementing a Novel and Supportive Outreach Program of Individualized Care for Patients and Families Living with REspiratory Disease

 The INSPIRED COPD Outreach program is a novel, home-based clinical initiative, that through improved care transitiions, self-management, and engagement in advance care planning, has demonstrated a significant improvement in quality of life of Canadians living with COPD, while dramatically reducing hospital re-adminissions and emergency department visits
 
The Lung Association of Nova Scotia is proud to support this program, which enhances care for COPD patients. We spoke with health care practitioners across the Maritimes, who are involved with delivering the INSPIRED program. The following videos share their perspectives on each aspect of the program and how these components helps patients better manage their COPD.
 
If you or a family member have COPD and are interested in the INSPIRED COPD Outreach program, please contact your family physician or respirologist.
