October 2014

This article was written by Graham Rocker and Jennifer Verma, and published in the Clinical and Investigative Medicine Online. This article discusses spreading and sustaining the evidence-informed INSPIRED COPD Outreach Program™ which was first implemented in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It outlines CFHI's INSPIRED quality improvement collaborative for COPD.

Key findings from the collaborative demonstrate that by enhancing patient confidence to manage their COPD illness more effectively in their home and community, there has been a substantial and sustained reduction in facility-based care in comparison with patient care experience prior to the INSPIRED program.
