  • Interprets aspects of the VA/DoD asthma and COPD CPGs
  • Standardizes care for pulmonary conditions
  • Helps with compliance to VA/DoD guidelines

The Pulmonary CPG AIM form was created to help interpret aspects of the VA/DoD asthma and COPD CPGs. The AIM form is a way to standardize and optimize the approach to care for these pulmonary conditions, and a way to help improve continuity of care and healthcare outcomes.
As a TSWF CPG AIM form, its development and usage helps with compliance to VA/DoD guidelines, as we have integrated recommendations from these CPGs into the form. The form provides easy access to reference materials for clinical decision-making, links to references for patient education materials, and standardizes our documentation.
