Hopkins Awarded $2.1M For COPD Program


The Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality has been awarded a $2.1 million contract to develop, implement and study a program that better supports people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) following hospitalization — a period when patients are especially prone to re-hospitalization. The three-year project will be funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute.

Common among longtime smokers, COPD is a progressive lung disease that affects one in seven U.S. adults, making it the country’s fourth-leading cause of death and a common cause of disability.
