    Implementation Research

    Background

    Long term respiratory illness such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is currently the fourth leading cause of death and accounts for 6% of all deaths in the world.  In Bangladesh, more than 6.5 million people over the age of 40 have COPD.  Living with COPD can be really hard and it also costs a lot to treat. In most patients, COPD is associated with co-morbidities and is generally under diagnosed and insufficiently managed at primary care level in Bangladesh.


    Despite having personal needs for improvement by professional training ,primary care physicians  find it difficult to to  attend such trainings leaving behind their patients awaiting to be served by the professionals in their day to day practice. Therefore, it is imperative to plan and organize training for primary care physicians keeping in mind the minimal disruption of their routine practices for their patients. One of the effective solutions is to organise both face-to-face and online methods (blended training) on COPD.
