Title : Identifying effective coping strategies in the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease population


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is progressive, debilitating, and the fourth leading cause of death worldwide.  COPD is seen in adult health care settings, and providers, nurses, and their patients must learn effective coping strategies to enhance individual quality of life for those diagnosed with COPD.  This review of the research explores the qualitative findings to identify effective coping strategies through developed themes in the COPD population.  This review will answer the following research question, how can adults living with COPD utilize effective coping strategies to maximize their quality of life in the face of a relentless disease?  The results of the research review revealed five themes: social support, coping, disrupting factors, impact on daily life, and wellness.  Reviewed research articles reflected that providers and nursing team support was the key to successful self-management of COPD and enhanced the patient's ability to cope and sustain the individual quality of life
