Clinical Resources

The Resources arm of the Clinical Platform contains digital content to help you keep your clinical knowledge up to date.

Earn CPD points as you work through case-based modules, watch our videos, read articles written by respiratory experts and keep up to date with monthly synopses of key papers.


We host an assortment of articles, written by experts from around the UK, that have been specifically chosen for our PCRA community of primary care clinicians.

For example, benefit on how to personalise action plans for individuals living with asthma or COPD.

Browse our range and enhance your respiratory learning.

Earn CPD points as you learn with this range of interactive, case-based modules. Choose from a selection covering subjects such as:

  • Smoking cessation

Journal Club

We publish quarterly synopses of relevant studies from the respiratory literature.

Only the primary literature is scanned – no review articles, no opinion pieces, no editorials. And all studies must be either from the UK, or able to be generalised to the UK.

You can filter by journal, keyword, subject or month of PCRA publication.

Journal Club


PCRA has created a number of videos of primary care clinicians discussing topical issues.

What do you do with the breathless patient? Perhaps you want to refresh your skills in performing quality-assured spirometry. Or your interest may lie with learning how you might help smokers quit.

You will be sure to find something of interest to you and your colleagues.



PCRA has recorded podcasts of primary care clinicians discussing a range of topics.

Learn about hot topics in the respiratory field, including disease-specific discussions, guidance updates, clinical best practice and more. Keep an eye out on this section for new podcasts as and when they become available.
