Brief description Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a common problem for current or ex smokers but is often undiagnosed. Effective treatment is available so early diagnosis is important. In this study practice nurses will identify patients who are at risk of COPD and undertake case finding. Patients newly diagnosed with COPD will then be offered a novel management intervention involving the GP and practice nurse working in partnership.
