Resource use during the last 6 months of life among COPD patients: a population level study.

08:00 EDT 11th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Resource use during the last 6 months of life among COPD patients: a population level study."

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients often have several comorbidities, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD) or lung cancer (LC), which might influence resource use in the final months of life. However, no previous studies documented resource use in end-of-life COPD patients at a population level, thereby differentiating whether COPD patients die of their COPD, CVD or LC.
