EQuiP COPD Trial Summary

This trial will assess whether pharmacist-led management of COPD is as effective as management by pulmonary specialists, to improve quality-of-care & COPD-related quality-of-life.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for patients with COPD who are current smokers not on cessation aid, have had a recent exacerbation or hospital discharge due to COPD, or use inhaled corticosteroids without meeting criteria. Primary care providers at participating sites can also join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study compares population management of COPD by pharmacists versus pulmonary specialists. Both will review patient cases and provide guideline-based recommendations through E-consults for primary care providers to act upon.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since the interventions involve management strategies rather than direct medications, specific side effects are not detailed; however, outcomes like medication adherence and quality-of-life improvements are being measured.
