COPD Phenotypes (AAN)

Price: FREE for members and non-members

Session recorded on July 26, 2022
Speaker: Vickram Tejwani, MD

Description: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) therapies have been fairly limited for several decades, however this may be due to approaching the heterogenous disease of COPD as a single homogenous disease. A better understanding of phenotypes may allow identification of treatable traits and a precision medicine paradigm for COPD. This webinar will help health care providers to be able to phenotype COPD to provide targeted therapy if indicated and keep in mind for future focused clinical trials. 

Viewers can earn credit by completing the posttest questions.

This program is a collaboration between the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the Allergy and Asthma Network.
