HEALTHY LUNG MONTH
October is Healthy Lung Month. In addition to a time when respiratory allergies may be worsened, Autumn signals the time of year when other conditions such as COPD exacerbations are more prominent. INPE's newest practice tool is a patient education document on COPD Exacerbations. Please use this resource proactively to prepare patients with COPD for potential exacerbation, so that they know what to do. This material is in the NP Tools and Resources section of this site. INPE is a member of the Breathe Better Network. Stay tuned for more details on COPD during November--National COPD Awareness Month.
COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE: DIABETES
In January 2014, INPE convened a panel of NPs to consider the value and feasiblity of an online Community of Practice for NPs interested in diabetes management. This meeting was followed by a brief online survey to validate interest in the development of the proposed resource. The meeting was supported through a grant from Novo Nordisk. The executive summary from the meeting and survey is available HERE. A toolkit of diabetes-relevant resources is available under the NP Tools and Resources tab on lefthand menu. November is also Diabetes Awareness Month. We will be sharing more resources to enhance your diabetes care in November.
