Resources for Employers, Policymakers, & Advocates

Many COPD patients are productive employees, contributing to the workplace and workforce.  It is projected that 6.1% of the workforce will have COPD by 2016.  Early diagnosis and smoking cessation are key to helping keep the workforce strong and healthy, and minimizing costs to employers and healthcare.

2.   Other Resources

Two joint, concurrent Hawaii resolutions on COPD have already passed.  There are many national issues affecting COPD, including Medicare reimbursements for oxygen and much more.  There is some Hawaii data about COPD and lung health screening as well.  All of Hawaii Public Housing will be smoke-free in the near future.  Many other rules, regulations and laws affect tobacco and COPD as well.  Below are a few resources about COPD and information on how to get involved in Hawaii and national issues.

In the 2010 legislative session, the Hawaii COPD Coalition supported a join concurrent resolution, urging all of the Hawaii Congressional Delegation to support the funding and development of a national program for COPD.  In the 2012 legislative session, a joint concurrent resolution was passed for the Department of Health to create a state COPD Plan.  Planning with many stakeholder partners has begun in 2012 and continues.
