COPD Symposium Objectives

  • Describe the pathophysiology of COPD, the GOLD classification, its role in disease stratification and management, and major clinical COPD phenotypes
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of COPD, define criteria for diagnosing COPD, and how to differentiate COPD from other common causes of dyspnea/cough
  • Understand the role of spirometry and be able to order appropriate pulmonary physiologic testing needed to diagnose and monitor patients with COPD
  • Identify the use and role of radiologic procedures such as CXR and Chest CT in the diagnosis and management of Chronic Obstructive Lung diseases
  • Recognize and avoid common pitfalls that prevent accurate interpretation of spirometric testing, appropriately tailor oxygen therapy and devices for patients and effectively use new inhaler devices
  • Identify COPD exacerbations and understand their impact on prognosis and care
  • Recognize signs and symptoms of respiratory failure and determine the need for noninvasive or invasive ventilatory support
  • Understand how to design a treatment plan and be able to institute relevant management strategies with an aim towards preventing future exacerbations and decrease hospital readmissions
  • Evaluate methods and practices needed to ensure optimal transition of care for the COPD patient between inpatient, outpatient and community care teams and appreciate unique challenges presented by diverse multicultural perspectives
  • Explain asthma pathophysiology, standard asthma therapies, and the role of biologic targeted therapies in treating asthma

Annual Conference Objectives

  • Recognize the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic correlations in interstitial lung disease
  • Describe new findings about the latest clinical trial data in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and identify how it affects current clinical practice
  • Understand rare lung diseases and the appropriateness of referral to specialized centers and clinical trials
  • Identify and more appropriately refer ILD patients for lung transplantation
  • Understand new findings about the strength of evidence for a link between chronic respiratory symptoms and diseases of the upper gastrointestinal tract
  • Describe the diagnosis and management of respiratory disease that occurs as a consequence of swallowing disorders and chronic aspiration
  • Improve the health status of patients with chronic respiratory diseases and those who have had lung transplantation, by identifying and treating chronic aspiration
  • Recognize the importance of coordinated, interdisciplinary care in the management of Aerodigestive Disorders
