Kentucky has the second highest rate of COPD of all of the US states. When updated clinical guidelines are released, it often takes several years for practitioners to fully understand and implement the update into practice. With so many Kentuckians battling this chronic and progressive lung disease, the impact of having health care professionals educated on the new guidelines could change the landscape of COPD care. Pharmacists are vital in the transition of care process for patients and also having a growing presence in ambulatory care settings.

This interactive webinar will update on newly released COPD guidelines followed by case discussions and Q&A on excellence in transition of care with pharmacist's involvement.
