Abstract

There are more than one million people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the UK. COPD does not follow a predictable course and differs from person to person. It is often difficult to determine the stage the person has reached in the condition:while some people will present with a gradual decline, others may remain stable for years, and some will require hospital admission for respiratory support. The uncertainties around the nature and progression of COPD make decisions about end of life care challenging.
