Item reduce the EXACT (Exacerbations of Chronic Pulmonary Disease Tool) Questionnaire for improved exacerbation risk prediction (clinical use and self-(tele) monitoring)

Through analysis of existing datasets utilising the EXerbAtions of Chronic Pulmonary Disease Tool (EXACT), to develop a reduced questionnaire that is sufficiently sensitive and specific to be a practical clinical tool for identifying the onset of exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aim is to use the existing EXACT database to develop a reduced (approximately five-item) questionnaire that is sufficiently sensitive and specific to be a practical clinical tool, and to validate the instrument in a second database.
