Work Plan

Chronic cough is a common clinical problem encountered by doctors in both general and hospital practice, it often persists for many months or years as a comorbid problem accompanying chronic disease, and remains difficult to manage. The first study to be conducted by the new Cough Working Group, led by Dr Lorcan McGarvey, aims to assess epidemiological pattern and burden of chronic cough, including long-term patient outcomes.
