National COPD Audit Programme: PREM workstream 2015

Patient experience sits at the heart of healthcare provision and is a core component of quality and service improvement.

What we are doing

This workstream consisted of a 1-year project which involved identifying, exploring and piloting PREM tools and methodologies and considering the practicalities/feasibility of collecting PREM data in primary care, secondary care and pulmonary rehabilitation. It engaged patients through focus group activities and pilot work. The National COPD Audit Programme PREM feasibility report is available to download.

Who's involved

Organisations

The British Lung Foundation (BLF) are leading this project on behalf of the programme, working with the Picker Institute Europe.

What we have produced

Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) are a key feature on the Government healthcare agenda. PREMs can provide important evidence regarding clinical care from the patient perspective.
