Abstract

Nurses play an important role in the management of chronic diseases. Here, we discuss the components of a novel system aimed at empowering patients living with chronic diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), in a context of precariousness for patients and health personnel, including nurses. This project aimed to evaluate the impact of nursing consultation and remote monitoring on the quality of life in patients with COPD. Two essential elements were linked to promote patient empowerment, which included a network of relationships among the community, hospital, and academic institutions as well as the promotion, contextualization, and co-management of therapeutic education programs among patients. Our results are applicable to all countries with vulnerable populations.
