Description:
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a chronic condition where the majority of patient care takes place in the primary care setting. However it is still necessary for secondary/tertiary services to provide specialist care and expertise when required. In fact, in 2006, 29% of respiratory inpatient hospitalisations related to COPD.1 The aim of this survey was to inform the development of a national COPD strategy, by describing the current resources available within acute HSE hospitals, for the care of patients with COPD
