Focus on improving management of COPD

  • Improving the quality of COPD care will not lower prevalence, however, it may reduce the risk of complications/ future events; improve quality of life for the patient and their carers/ families; reduce inequity in health outcomes; or reduce (or increase) health and social care utilisation and costs.
  • For signposting to relevant NICE guidelines/ quality standards relating to secondary prevention of COPD as a source of potential improvement actions, see below.
