Sandra G. Adams, MD, MS who received the Distinguished Scholar Award in Respiratory Health from the Chest Foundation, created these videos for healthcare professionals, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, COPD educators, etc. as part of a project entitled WIPECOPD (Web-based Interactive Professional Education in COPD).
Dr. Adams is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Pulmonary/Critical Care Division at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and The South Texas Veterans Health Care System, says each video has great instructions for both the patient and clinician.
“I’m interested in getting more patient information out there. And this is very useful for patients,” Adams, who is also a member of the Clinical Advisory Committee for the COPD Foundation, says. “We wanted to have a series of videos for patients that would be helpful [in every day use].”
