COPD Guidelines are ever changing. Recent research has led to a greater understanding of COPD pathology and genetics. These findings suggest that we treat individuals based on several domains, not just spirometry classification. You will learn about the seven severity domains and implications for treatment organized in a simplified Therapy Chart.

Course Objectives
-Discuss current literature and research that warrants the need to change COPD guidelines
-Describe new features of the GOLD Guidelines and the COPD Foundation Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment
-Introduce the seven severity domains and implications for treatment
-Identify how these changes will impact diagnosis and treatment recommendations
