Be Inspired Clinics
COPD is a group of breathing conditions, including bronchitis and emphysema that make it difficult for someone to breathe properly.
Here at City Hospice, we care for, and support many patients with COPD. Our Occupational Therapist, Rachel, has established the ‘Be Inspired’ clinic to help those who are struggling with the condition.
Be Inspired stands for: Breathlessness Interventions & Self-Management Programme In Respiratory Difficulties
The clinic runs for three weeks and provides patients with self-management techniques to help manage symptoms of breathlessness.
Topics covered include:
- Lung function
- Breathing techniques
Attendees can also receive information on the psychological support available to them, along with financial advice.
“Patients positively engage in the self-management process and benefit from peer support”.
