View a great "question and answer" session with Barbara Yawn, MD, MSc, FAAFP, Dept of Family and Community Health, University of Minnesota, Respiratory Specialist. After a recent presentation "New Perspectives in COPD Management," Dr. Yawn answers questions about COPD management, including spirometry reports, vaping/smoking cessation, black box warning on inhalers, spacers, palliative care, age-appropriate prescribing, and what qualifies as an exacerbation. It's a short but very informative session. Enjoy!
