The PELICAN Study: Improving Oxygen Compliance at Home

Speaker Jerry Krishnan MD PhD Date Jan 13, 2015 1:05 PM

Many patients who are prescribed supplemental oxygen in the home do not follow the prescription orders, which decreases the benefit of the therapy. Researchers at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences Systems received a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) grant to study an intervention aimed at improving supplemental oxygen compliance and improving patients’ self-management skills. Dr. Krishnan, the study’s lead researcher, will discuss the details of the intervention, PEer-Led O2 Infoline for patients and Caregivers (PELICAN), and how respiratory therapists can assist in enrolling patients with COPD in the study. Join this free webcast to learn how you can help your COPD patients participate in this vital research and identify interventions that can improve therapy compliance to maximize patient quality of life.
