Chronic respiratory diseases are a leading causes of illness and death in Australia and internationally. More than 10% of the overall health burden in Australia is a result of lung disease. It is a major cause of mortality, hospitalization, quality of life impairment and loss of productivity in the work place. Chronic respiratory diseases also are complicated by multiple comorbidities, particularly anxiety and depression. Integrated care models that target mental health and other comorbidities are effective in decreasing disease burden and improving health status. This presentation will focus on effective models that can be delivered by nurses to improve outcomes for people with chronic lung disease.

The Australian Primary Health Care Association acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
