COPD self-management pack

This pack includes the self-management plan and exercise handbook.

The pack provides you with all the necessary information you need to understand your condition and how you can manage your symptoms. 

The plan covers everything from coping with feeling out of breath, support to quit smoking, ways to keep active, and help to set goals.

People living with COPD pass on their experience and advice alongside top tips.

There’s also space to record symptoms, keep track of medication and a handy pull-out flare-up plan.

The exercise handbook covers:

  • How exercise can help you
  • How to exercise safely
