Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPDProvidence Care’s -COPD Program is specifically designed to decrease symptomatic stresses associated with COPD by integrating formal palliative medicine in the outpatient arena and home setting.  Aggressive treatment of symptoms that occur with advanced COPD is currently an unmet need in the care of patients with advanced lung disease.   The goal of Providence’s-COPD Program is to help patients with respiratory disease live for as long as they can as well as they can; the goals of Palliative Medicine are the same with a specific focus on symptoms of breathlessness, anxiety, and the fear that can come when living with a chronic respiratory condition.
