Dyspnea is the symptom of breathlessness that affects most patients with Respiratory Diseases and limits their everyday lives.
CALMA is a European-funded project to redesign the experience of COPD patients and caregivers suffering dyspnea.
CALMA Programming includes a training programme and care protocol for Patients, Caregivers and Care Pairs to learn how to better manage their daily Dyspnea and their Dyspnea Exacerbations. It includes a series of participatory workshops to learn how to brace a breathlessness crisis and a Reflection protocol after a hospitalization because of a Dyspnea Exacerbation to learn from it and know how to react to future crises.
