Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): Approach to Care

This COPD Management Tool is a 3-in-1 personal tool that helps you talk with your doctor to make a plan that is best for you.  With a plan, you will know how and when to take your medicines, when to call your health care provider and when to get emergency care.  A management plan also helps you track how you are doing, any concerns you may have and any changes in your health that are important to discuss with your doctor.

Find a doctor who treats COPD at UF Health.

Each person's COPD is different and so is each management plan.  We hope you will use the tools provided here to work with your doctor to make a plan that is right for you.
