Prospective assessment of incident respiratory symptoms in COPD (PAIRS-COPD): feasibility study

Lead investigators Professor Angela Tod, Dr Steve Brummell
Funded by South Yorkshire CLAHRC
Amount £5924
Dates August - December 2014

Aim

This mixed method observational study explores the feasibility of using four monthly telephone contacts with COPD patients to identify the emergence of NICE-recommended lung cancer symptoms.

This is a collaborative study between CHSCR and Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Foundation trust.

The Centre for Health and Social Care Research has been commissioned to undertake a qualitative evaluation of patient perceptions and experiences and the acceptability of the intervention. Data collection is within a large research-active GP practice in Doncaster and uses interviews followed by a focus group.

The quantitative component is ongoing and includes identification of indications for a chest x-ray and a longitudinal follow-up study to examine any effects of the intervention on diagnosis of lung cancer in this patient cohort over 10 years. This part of the study is being overseen by a research team based at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
