Abstract

This paper describes the development of a community-based scheme for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The nurse-led scheme, which involves making regular visits to patients to help them manage their condition at home and to provide support and education, has resulted in early detection of problems and a reduction in hospital admissions.
