The Clinical Management Group investigates the care of people with asthma and COPD and sleep related problems in the community, clinic and hospital environment. They design models of care, perform clinical trials and work in practice to improve the daily care of these diseases by healthcare professionals. The group’s research is patient-centred, ensuring care involves the patient in decision making about their health and day-to-day management of their respiratory or sleep condition. They collaborate with GPs, pharmacists, nurses, research psychologists, asthma educators, physiotherapists, speech pathologists and specialist respiratory and sleep physicians to provide better respiratory care for patients in the future. They also interact with professional organisations to make sure that their research is adopted in practice for better health care.
