Clinical Practice Tools and Resources
The COPD Pocket Guide, provided by the COPD Foundation, contains comprehensive management information as well as resource tools. It can be downloaded onto any mobile device.
The mMRC scale, provided by MDCalc, allows for the baseline stratification of dyspnea in COPD, as well as other respiratory diseases.
The CAT, provided by the American Academy of Family Physicians, allows assessment of the global impact of COPD (cough, sputum, dyspnea, chest tightness) on patient health status.
The PHQ-9 is a short, validated screening tool to assess a patient’s depression severity.
Patient Resources and Advocacy Organizations
The COPD Pocket Guide for Patients was designed to improve disease management and communication with a patient’s health care team. It includes patient resources such as inhaler and exercise videos as well as tools such as the wallet card and daily symptom tracker that help collect and share information with the health care team. It can be downloaded onto any mobile device.
The American Lung Association is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, advocacy, and research.
The COPD Foundation’s mission is to prevent and cure COPD and to improve the lives of all people affected by COPD.
GOLD partners with health care professionals and public health officials to raise awareness of COPD and to improve prevention and treatment of this lung disease for patients around the world.
National Jewish Health integrates the latest scientific discoveries with coordinated care for lung, heart, and immune diseases. Their Patient Education Program provides many free educational opportunities and support groups to assist patients and caregivers with managing illnesses and chronic conditions, such as COPD.
