Abstract

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a chronic condition that requires the engagement of our patients in lifestyle changes and pharmacological treatment. Although there are guidelines on many aspects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease management, the challenge of engaging our patients persists. We propose a simple mnemonic that we hope will make it easier for patients and clinicians to achieve this goal together.
