COPD treatment guidance update released by NHS

  • Comment

NHS Evidence has published an update summarising latest research for clinicians treating patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The update focuses on evidence relevant to National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidance on the management of COPD.

It does not replace the guidance but highlights new evidence that might “generate a future change in practice”.

Sam Ahmedzai, professor of palliative medicine at the University of Sheffield, said: “This new evidence update on COPD from NHS Evidence demonstrates both how much progress there has been in this exciting area of medical research, but also in some areas, how much the emerging evidence confirms current national guidance.”

He added: “Clinicians, healthcare commissioners and researchers will benefit from reading this and incorporating it into their practice and strategies.”
