PELICAn (PEer-Led o2 Info-line for patients and Caregivers) tested whether a patient-centered telephone support increased adherence and improved the health of patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) using supplemental oxygen. PELICAn was funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
