The National COPD Audit Programme has embedded quality improvement (QI) into its work. This page will hold all the QI resources produced by the audit programme, along with links to resources elsewhere.
The National Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Audit Programme for England and Wales comprises a number of ambitious audit workstreams, combined with an extensive partnership approach and comprehensive multidisciplinary, collaborative working.
The Asthma Audit Development Project informed the specification of a national asthma audit to cover England and Wales, established what audit approach should be adopted and carried out some of the foundation work required.
This workstream consisted of a 1-year project which involved identifying, exploring and piloting PREM tools and methodologies, and considering the practicalities and feasibility of collecting PREM data in primary care, secondary care and pulmonary rehabilitation.
