COPD self-management plan

Our self-management plan includes all the necessary information for your COPD patients to understand their condition and give them tools to manage it.

It explains symptoms and possible treatments, as well as information on flare-ups and an example flare-up action plan. There's also information on managing breathlessness, support to quit smoking, ways to keep active, and help to set goals. There’s also space to record symptoms, keep track of medication and record flare-ups.

The latest version of this information is available to view and download instantly on our website. You can download this information (PDF 3.24 MB) as a free, interactive PDF file to view on your computer, email to others, or print at home.

To reduce our impact on the environment, we’d encourage everyone to view the information as a free PDF. But if you do need to order printed copies in bulk, please select a quantity below. Each pack contains 25 booklets and you can order a maximum of two packs of each publication per order. Our booklets and leaflets are free to order and deliver for health care professionals and support groups.
