Patients admitted to Department of Internal Medicine M, Glostrup University hospital, with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are evaluated with regard to early follow-up by a specialized nurse in the home after discharge. Eligible patients receive education about disease management. The intervention is evaluated by comparing the number of readmissions for COPD and the duration of admissions during the study period to the the period prior to the implementation of this intervention.
