Prioritised research questions

The IPCRG identified 145 primary care respirsatory research needs in five domains: asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tobacco dependence, respiratory infections. We have subsequently prioritised these using an international e-Delphi exercise.
