dc.description.abstractWHAT WE NEED TO KNOW: Why is there undiagnosed and untreated asthma in older people in the community and in general practice? What patient, general practitioner and organisational factors contribute to this? Are current best practice guidelines appropriate for older people with asthma? WHAT WE NEED TO DO: Undertake broad community and general practice screening to identify characteristics of older people with undiagnosed asthma. Analyse GPs' perspectives and decision-making processes for older people with dyspnoea. Undertake targeted research in general practice, trialling decision-making frameworks for older patients with dyspnoea. Undertake appropriate and relevant community and GP awareness campaigns about the prevalence of asthma in older people. Analyse current best practice management of asthma, including self-management and the Asthma 3+ Visit Plan, in older people.
