Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a long-term condition affecting all aspects of an individual’s life. Specialist Community practitioner district nurses (SCPDN) manage patients with multiple co morbidities on their caseload, and as such require an extensive clinical knowledge base. COPD is a highly prevalent and complex disease; therefore, individualised holistic assessments are required to ensure patients receive personalised and evidence-based care. Care delivery must include health interventions encompassing, screening, health promotion and prevention. The SCPDN’s consideration of the physical, mental, and social determinants which adversely affect the health of the individual with COPD is imperative to deliver high quality care to the individuals, families, and communities.
