About This Program
The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Clinic is part of CMH's Ambulatory Care Program. This program provides focused, short term outpatient services to support patients. The Ambulatory Care Program and its various clinics support the population areas of Cambridge and North Dumfries.
The COPD Clinic is an outpatient clinic providing education and treatment plans to patients with COPD. Its goal is to help patients increase their function and quality of life, by reducing the symptoms of COPD and hospitalizations. In partnership with patients we develop a treatment plan based on individual needs and abilities. Specific program objectives include COPD assessment & management, patient and care giver education on medication management, the benefits of exercise, smoking cessation, nutrition review and prevention of exacerbations and hospital re-admissions.
