COPD Flare-ups

An increase in symptoms of COPD is known as a flare-up or exacerbation.

Funded by a grant from the British Lung Foundation, the COPD Flare-ups PSP was established in 2019 to identify the questions that are most important to those affected.

The final PSP workshop took place in April 2021.  The COPD Flare-ups PSP Top 10 was published in May 2021.
