MULTICENTER STUDY
Kate S LeMay, Carol L Armour, Helen K Reddel
BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend basing asthma management on assessment of asthma control. Validated control tools, while suitable for clinical research, may not be feasible for routine use in primary care. AIMS: To describe the performance of the Pharmacy Asthma Control Screening tool (PACS) compared with the Asthma Control Questionnaire (ACQ-6). METHODS: Data were obtained from a multicentre study of a community pharmacy asthma management programme in Australia, with three or four visits over six months...

BACKGROUND: Severity of airflow obstruction in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is based on forced expiratory volume in one second expressed as percentage predicted (FEV1%predicted) derived from reference equations for spirometry results. AIMS: To establish how switching to new spirometric reference equations would affect severity staging of airflow obstruction in the Dutch primary care COPD patient population. METHODS: Spirometry tests of 3,370 adults aged >40 years with obstruction (postbronchodilator FEV1/forced vital capacity (FVC) <0...

BACKGROUND: The gold standard for the diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is spirometry, but there are barriers to its use in primary care. AIMS: To externally validate the COPD Diagnostic Questionnaire (CDQ) as a diagnostic tool in patients at increased risk in Australian general practice and to compare its performance with other CDQ validation studies. METHODS: Patients were recruited from 36 general practices in Sydney, Australia...

BACKGROUND: Asthma management guidelines advocate a stepwise approach to asthma therapy, including the addition of a long-acting bronchodilator to inhaled steroid therapy at step 3. This is almost exclusively prescribed as inhaled combination therapy. AIMS: To examine whether asthma prescribing practice for inhaled combination therapy (inhaled corticosteroid/long-acting β2-agonist (ICS/LABA)) in primary care in Northern Ireland is in line with national asthma management guidelines...

Alfredo Cano-Garcinuño, Isabel Mora-Gandarillas
BACKGROUND: Wheezing phenotypes in young children have usually been described on the basis of questionnaire surveys instead of prospectively doctor-diagnosed episodes, and have never been described in terms of incidence rates. AIMS: To identify wheezing phenotypes in the first three years and describe their incidence trends, and to investigate their relationship with asthma at six years of age. METHODS: Doctor-diagnosed wheezing episodes in the first 36 months and active asthma at six years were identified in a historical cohort of 3,739 children followed from birth in 29 primary care health centres in Spain...

BACKGROUND: A setting-specific asthma prediction score for preschool children with wheezing and/or dyspnoea presenting in primary healthcare is needed since existing indices are mainly based on general populations. AIMS: To find an optimally informative yet practical set of predictors for the prediction of asthma in preschool children at high risk who present in primary healthcare. METHODS: A total of 771 Dutch preschool children at high risk of asthma were followed prospectively until the age of six years...

BACKGROUND: Studies have suggested that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is commonly misdiagnosed and misclassified in primary care, but less is known about the quality of diagnosis in specialist respiratory care. AIMS: To measure the accuracy of COPD diagnosis and classification of airway obstruction in primary care and at a specialist respiratory centre, and to explore associations between misdiagnosis and misclassification and a range of explanatory factors...

BACKGROUND: Care coordination is defined as good communication between professionals to enable access to services based on need. AIMS: To explore patients' experience of care coordination in order to inform current debates on how best to coordinate care and deliver services in end-of-life for patients with lung cancer and those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS: A qualitative study involving serial interviews was performed in 18 patients recruited from three hospital outpatient clinics situated in a hospital...

Time delay to tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis remains a public health concern. In pregnancy, early TB diagnosis is challenging and acquires further significance due to the risk of infection of the newborn as well as others in the maternity setting. We report a delay of 12 weeks in the diagnosis of TB in a pregnant recent immigrant from Ethiopia to Israel. Contact investigation revealed pulmonary TB in her two daughters aged four and seven years. We discuss the reasons for this delay in diagnosis, how a more timely diagnosis might have been made, and the dilemma of initiating treatment in unconfirmed TB...

AIMS: To investigate the association of the GOLD ABCD groups classification with costs and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL) and to compare this with the GOLD 1234 grades classification that was primarily based on lung function only. METHODS: In a cross-sectional study, we selected patients diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) from electronic medical records of general practices. Multi-level analysis was used with costs (medication, primary care, healthcare, societal), diseasespecific and generic HR-QoL as independent variables...
