COPD Population Screener™ (COPD-PS™)

The COPD Population Screener™ (COPD-PS™) is a five question health survey clinically validated for detecting chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The survey is suitable for use with or without lung-functioning testing and reflects the full impact of COPD by evaluating various domains, which include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Cough/sputum
  • Functional impact
  • Other patient characteristics (smoking history, age)

The COPD-PS is self-completed, precise, reliable and easy to score and interpret. It is appropriate for use with the general population, as it is not only targeted to those already seeking treatment for breathing problems. It can also be used across the health care spectrum from clinical practice to clinical trials.

This survey is intended for adults 18 years of age and older and is available in multiple language translations with a standard four-week recall period.
