COPD: Understanding and Treatment
Short Description: Do you or a loved one have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)? COPD is emphysema, chronic bronchitis, or both. About 80 – 90% of COPD diagnoses are caused by smoking. Once COPD occurs, the disease is not reversible. With practical tools and an effective plan, you will have a good understanding of this lung disease, its treatment options, and coping strategies. Our COPD course will help you be better prepared to cope or care for a loved one with the disease.
Instructor Description: This class is an independent-study course. Students will have all the resources needed to successfully complete the course within the online material. A student helpdesk is available for technical support during the course enrollment.
