NICE COVID-19 rapid guidance on managing respiratory conditions
This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on the NICE rapid guidelines for respiratory conditions.
The questions, written by Dr Kevin Gruffydd-Jones relate to his article, NICE COVID-19 guidelines on respiratory conditions: implications for primary care, and the NICE COVID-19 rapid guidelines on community-based care of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), severe asthma, and managing suspected or confirmed pneumonia in adults in the community.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- determine those at ‘high risk’ as described by the NICE COVID-19 rapid guidelines
- understand the risks associated with inhaled corticosteroids
- identify bacterial pneumonia and prescribe appropriate antibiotics.
