COPD Learning Collaborative Self-Paced Champion Training

This training will focus on COPD best practices, noninvasive ventilation (NIV) use for COPD patients, and interprofessional training for clinicians treating COPD patients. The NIV training will cover patient selection, monitoring, and weaning to reduce NIV failure and improve patient outcomes. Interprofessional training will provide skills to create and strengthen teamwork when treating COPD patients. Case studies will reinforce the best practices for COPD, proper delivery of NIV, and provide a practice of interprofessional teamwork skills. At the end of the session, we will cover how to be a Champion to encourage peers to attend a training session, implement the COPD and NIV knowledge, and teamwork skills learned in training at your hospital..

Dr. Victor Pinto-Plata will present on COPD best practices, and Dr. Nicholas Hill will present on NIV use for COPD patients. Dr. Mary Jo Farmer Ph.D.; Dr. Steingrub; Dean Hess, RRT, Ph.D., FAARC; Helen Scoville, RRT; and Christine Callahan RN, MS will present an Algorithm for COPD exacerbations and review NIV machines and settings. Dr. Mihaela Stefan Ph.D., and Ashely Hughes, Ph.D. will present on teamwork and interprofessional competencies and Christopher Shea Ph.D. will present on being a Champion at your home.
