Desktop Helper No. 8 - Improving care for women with COPD: Guidance for primary care

This 2-page Desktop Helper aims to be a practical guide for clinicians. 

The scope of global primary care includes not only disease management, but also prevention and early risk identification, finding those people in the community who need special attention, diagnosis, treatment and management. One such challenge is to identify early, diagnose, and treat women with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
