Abstract [en]

Objective: To investigate the organisation of primary health care with regard to management of asthma and COPD and relate it to the guidelines and quality indicators for organisation stated by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare and to an earlier study in the area. Background: The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare assessed quality indicators for the organisation and equipment for asthma and COPD in primary health care in 2004. These are spirometer, pulse oximeter for assessing respiratory impairment, nebuliser for emergency treatment and an asthma/COPD clinic for patient education. Method: A postal survey in 2005 to 56 randomly selected primary health care centres in Mid-Sweden. The survey included questions about access to an asthma/COPD clinic, spirometer, pulse oximeter, nebuliser, organisation for smoking cessation and rehabilitation. Results: All centres answered the survey. 93% had a spirometer, 83% pulse oximeter, 90% nebuliser and 64% asthma/COPD clinic. 65% had access to a program for smoking cessation within primary care. Regarding resources for COPD patients 63% centres had access to physiotherapy, 71% to occupational therapy, 41% to a dietician and 93% to a social welfare official or psychologist. Conclusion: The possibilities to offer patients with asthma and COPD sufficient care is good regarding access to diagnostic tools as spirometers and pulse oximeters and nebulisers, while access to education through an asthma/COPD clinic is insufficient. Compared to the results from the AIM-study in 2000 primary health care centres with asthma clinics have increased from 52% to 64% and access to spirometer from 76% to 93%. Only two-thirds of the centres can offer a program for smoking cessation which is insufficient. The study shows that many centres have the resources to start pulmonary rehabilitation for patients with COPD.
