COPD Clinic

Program Type: Chronic Disease Management
Description:

If a patient of the STAR Family Health Team has Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) they may be given an option to attend the COPD clinic, held monthly at each of the three sites of the STAR Family Health Team. This clinic gives the patient the opportunity to meet with a Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacist and, as needed, a Dietitian or Mental Health Counsellor to discuss important factors that will help the patient to live better with this condition.  Each patient will receive education about COPD and an individualized action plan to help them monitor their condition and implement the necessary steps if unusual symptoms arise. The COPD Clinic is available at each of our three sites. Please consult your family doctor to discuss if this program would be of benefit to you.
