So far, 4 videos are available in Open Outlook: COPD, including IJCOPD Editor-in-Chief Dr Richard Russell, Associate Editor Professor David Mannino (added today), Professor David Price, and Charles Tantucci.

Welcome and introduction by Dr Richard Russell, Editor-in-Chief of the IJCOPD, University of Oxford. Russell acknowleges the long way we've come in COPD, and touches on what else is needed in the COPD journey.

Professor Claudio Tantucci, University of Brescia, discusses key points in the functional decline and diagnosis in COPD.

IJCOPD Associate Editor Professor David Mannino, University of Brescia, talks about the role of surveys in improving our understanding of COPD epidemiology

Professor David Price, University of Aberdeen on how big database studies include more representative patient populations and can answer questions that can't be addressed by randomised control trials.

Speaking about the Open Outlook: COPD video series, Dr Russell said, “The starting point for this program is to look at what the last 10 years have meant for our existing management of COPD. We’ll then look at what’s ahead in the next five, including COPD treatment guidelines, preclinical and clinical targets and the possibilities presented by Big Data. We expect significant advances in 2016, and we’ll outline what that means for patient care.”

More videos will be added in the coming weeks. Coming up at the end of February, Professor Peter Barnes, Imperial College London, discusses the need to find new treatments for COPD and the progress being made in this area.

The videos are also live on our YouTube playlist Open Outlook: COPD. Do follow us on YouTube to be alerted to new videos

The Open Outlook: COPD series forms part of our Open Outlook programme, a celebration of the 10 years that Dove Medical Press has been in open access publishing.
