This pragmatic guide has been developed based on the work of the PCRS Greener Healthcare Working Group. In 2020, the PCRS Greener Healthcare Initiative brought together respiratory healthcare professionals working in primary and secondary care setting, public health specialist, patient advocacy organisations, patient representative, policy influences, service users and decision makers as well as representatives from the pharmaceutical industry.
The necessary restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have created a backlog of patients in primary care who have perhaps delayed coming forward with respiratory health concerns, whose respiratory condition has worsened during lockdown and those whose assessment or treatment has been delayed. As we emerge from this seismic shift in primary healthcare provision, there is an urgent need to work through this backlog of patients.
In this article authors Daryl Freeman and Noel Baxter discuss some top tips you can implement locally to make the case for and influence others positively in support of greener respiratory healthcare.
PCRS have issued a position statement on strategies to care for patients with respiratory disease and frailty in the community setting. Frailty is thought to affect around 10% of those aged over 65 years and up to half of those aged over 85 years. The health and social care needs of these vulnerable patients can be complex and require a holistic approach that should involve confirmation of current diagnoses and review of all medications giving consideration to the goals of treatment, likely benefits and likely side effects.
