COPD Guidelines

Standards for diagnosis and treatment

Goals and objectives
The COPD guidelines are an international consensus statement sponsored by the ATS and ERS. The main goals are to improve the quality of care provided to patients with COPD. To achieve these goals, both organisations have agreed to develop a modular electronic web-based document with two components.

  • For professionals
 Standards for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with COPD
  • For patients
 Information for patients
 Informationen für Patienten Information pour les patients
 Información para los pacientes
 Informazioni per i pazienti

The translation of the original English document to German, French, Italian and Spain has been made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim.
