CONQUEST is a novel primary care quality improvement programme to support you to provide optimal care for your patients with COPD. CONQUEST promotes the implementation of 4-evidence based Quality Standards, aiming to enhance patient care, reduce exacerbations and improve health care outcomes.


CONQUEST aims to close the gaps in current COPD care by driving EARLY identification of HIGH-RISK PATIENTS and targeted, risk-based treatment with the patient at the centre.

Our vision is to drive change in the management of patients at risk of COPD exacerbations by imbedding quality standards in routine primary care.

CONQUEST is free to GP practices and will provide the structure and support to affect changes in patient management by providing a specialist trained healthcare professional to support your practice with:

Identifying high-risk patients with COPD, including those who are undiagnosed

Helping your patients receive a timely assessment of their COPD, optimise their treatment, and assist them to understand the disease and it’s long-term effects

Support implementation of the best available treatment in line with national and local guidance

Review of current management plans

Practice Sites Benefits

Ongoing education, training, support, monitoring and improvement
Package embedded within practice processes and care pathways
Decrease in practice-patient contacts and improved patient experience
Facilitators will help practices with the implementation

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.

F&A Policy

Optimum Patient Care’s Facilities and Administration Costs Policies (for US institutions / projects only)

It is the policy of Optimum Patient Care Limited (OPC) to charge facilities and administration fees (F&A) for grants and contracts undertaken by OPC. In cases other than where a set federal F&A rate has been established, OPC will accept the specific F&A rate publicly established by a given not-for-profit funding agency for grant or contract activities as long as it meets or exceeds the currently established OPC minimum rate. The minimum acceptable F&A rate of OPC is 10% without special dispensation. The F&A rate for industry funded grants and contracts is 25% and it is OPC policy to not pay a higher rate than this.

OPC will distribute F&A fees to sub-contractors prorated to the direct costs included in the sub-contract. OPC will pay sub-contractors the facilities and administration percentage of direct costs as established by the specific funding agency for a particular grant, or for federal grants at the established federal rate for the sub-contractor. OPC will also collect facility and administration fees on the first $25,000 of a sub-contract for the life of a grant or contract. The sub-contractor may also request facilities and administration fees for the initial $25,000 of a sub-contract. If duplicate facilities and administration fees are not allowed for sub-contracts by a funding agency then the fees associated with the first $25,000 of direct costs will be equally paid to the sub-contractor and OPC.
OPC does not pay facilities and administration fees for purchased services or consultation services.
