NACAP QI Project 4 – Pulmonary rehabilitation

Presented by Dr Katherine Hickman, GP and Primary Care Clinical Lead for the National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP)


The aim of this Quality Improvement Project is to refer 70% or more of people patients with COPD (who are functionally disabled by breathlessness) to pulmonary rehabilitation (PR), and evidence this with the appropriate SNOMED code in their notes, by November 2021.

The ICST platform hosts this NACAP Quality Improvement Project. It is a dynamic and integrated platform, freely accessible to healthcare teams – including National Clinical Guidelines and Pathways, Standards, Education, Certifications, Registers and an Integrated Quality Improvement platform.
