This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on diagnosing chronic cough in primary care—you will then be prompted to reflect on your learning.

Start the activity on Guidelines Learning

The questions, written by Dr Jessica Garner relate to her expert article, Chronic cough: what’s the diagnosis, which considers the possible causes of chronic cough in patients, from asthma to pulmonary fibrosis. These questions have been developed for your CPD.

On completion of this activity, you should be able to:

  • identify the most likely cause of a patient’s chronic cough
  • confirm or rule out differential diagnoses for chronic cough
  • spot red flags that may indicate a referral to specialist or multidisciplinary care.
