Plans for managing end stage of the disease (Retired Apr 2016)

If you have advanced COPD, a joint approach between clinicians, you and your family or carers to manage the condition and an agreement documented as to the most invasive therapeutic intervention offered.

In 2016 clinical experts in the North West decided that this measure sits well within the secondary care of patients with COPD. However emphasis should be on identifying who should receive Non-Invasive Ventilation, this forms part of the data collection measures, therefore this was retired from the measure set.
