About us

Introduction to COPD has been developed by Education for Health and is endorsed by the European Respiratory Nurse Association (ERNA). The online resource is supported by an unrestricted grant from Almirall, to provide educational resources for healthcare professionals who have an interest in respiratory care across Europe.

Introduction to COPD is a dynamic, engaging and interactive online resource which uses elements of eLearning to enable individual nurses to improve their confidence and competence in managing people with COPD.

Education for Health is a global charity providing continuing medical education and professional development for health care professionals who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in diagnosing, managing and treating long term medical conditions.

Education for Health aims to ensure that all patients with a long term condition have the knowledge and skills to maintain or improve their quality of life and prevent their condition worsening. It believes the best way of achieving this is to ensure primary health professionals, in particular nurses, have up to date clinical skills to diagnose, manage, treat and educate their patients in the complexities of their condition, equipping them with the knowledge and confidence to self-care.
