What does this mean for you and your patients?
Patients will receive assessments of individual risk and biological traits to drive optimal management and follow up
And this will benefit your patients through:
- Improving rates of smoking cessation, flu/ pneumococcal vaccination and self-management.
- Improving assessment and treatment, reducing steroid and antibiotics burden.
- Optimising treatment that will lead to a reduction in exacerbations and rate of lung function decline, whilst improving COPD control and quality of life.
