Research Opportunity: Targeting treatable traits in COPD to prevent hospitalisations

Monash University Centre for Medicine Use and Safety investigators are urgently seeking expressions of interest from general practice clinics for this well-remunerated study to deliver tailored intervention or provide usual care in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

‘Treatable traits’ (TTs) refers to individually assessing patients for a specified set of treatable problems, followed by the development and implementation of an individualised treatment programme. The aim of this research project is to evaluate the efficacy of a practice nurse-coordinated intervention - Targeting Treatable Traits in COPD to Prevent Hospitalisations (TERRACOTTA) – in the Australian primary care. The goal is to improve quality of life in patients with COPD and reduce hospitalisations.

In the TERRACOTTA trial, disease management targeting TT will be delivered by an interdisciplinary team of general practitioners (GPs), practice nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals.
