Final Report of the Irish COPD Collaborative

Improving the quality of care for patients living with COPD

The Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Improvement Collaborative published its final report in November 2019.

In 2018/2019 18 consultant-led multidisciplinary respiratory teams from 19 Irish hospitals participated in the first cycle of this collaborative learning programme, which aimed to improve the quality of care for patients presenting to hospital services with Acute Exacerbation of COPD. 

The collaborative was launched in September 2018, under a joint initiative between the Clinical Innovation and Design (formerly Clinical Strategy and Programmes), National Respiratory Programme (formerly National Clinical Programme for COPD) and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI).
