COPD value pyramid

Posted on: 4 Aug 2017

This model was originally published in 2012.

The COPD Value Pyramid is a model that is designed to aid clinicians, system commissioners and providers to make value-based decisions for people and populations with COPD. In expressing the comparative value of various interventions in terms of cost per individual per quality-adjusted life year (QALY), it provides a guide for how value for patients and for the healthcare system can be optimised.

It was developed by the NHS England London Respiratory Network, with whose kind permission it is here reproduced.
