The IPCRG is pleased to offer some free new desktop helpers (2 sides of A4 practical guidance) for primary care clinicians.
- Improving care for women with COPD
- Personalised care: adults with asthma
- Pulmonary Rehabilitation in the community
And also two position papers (calls to action)
- Making the Case for Personalised Care for Adults with Asthma
- Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) helps people breathe better, feel good, and do more: Why you should invest in PR for your population
These are available in English, and some in Spanish and Portuguese (other languages will follow).
We also have films with volunteer patients and clinician sharing how they have a conversation about pulmonary rehabilitation (as many people never get offered it, or don't turn up once referred). Available at www.ipcrg.org/PR
Patients may also find these materials helpful, and most involved patients in the writing, but as we are first and foremost a charity for primary care professionals, we are aiming primarily at our audience.
These and the other desktop helpers are available at www.ipcrg.org/desktophelpers
