OBJECTIVE: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an important health problem. The disease management consists of avoiding risk factors, therapy for maintenance of disease stability, and prevention and treatment of exacerbations. Patient education and motivational interviewing are thought to be effective approaches in disease management. This study aimed to investigate the effects of repeated education and motivational interviewing conducted by a multidisciplinary team, and the outcomes in COPD patients.
