ABSTRACT
ABSTRACT In 2017, the World Health Organization reported that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) impacted 251 million individuals and was responsible for 3.17 million deaths globally. To educate hospitalized patients with COPD about self-management at home, nurses require an action plan to use as part of discharge instructions. This article discusses the benefits of COPD action plans revealed in the literature and describes the creation and use of such an action plan by the author.
