This is a qualitative research exploration engaging clinical staff at all levels from 10 Practice-Based Research Networks (PBRNs) serving US patient populations of differing gender, racial, ethnic, urban/rural and socio-economic blends, in the incorporation of a one-page, five-item questionnaire with selective PEF measurement (CAPTURE).


This is a prospective, multi-center qualitative study engaging clinical staff at all levels from primary care practices serving US patient populations of differing gender, racial, ethnic, urban/rural and socio-economic blends.

The CAPTURE tool consists of a 5-item self-administered questionnaire and selected use of peak expiratory flow (PEF) measurement, designed to identify clinically significant COPD.

This study will assess, using the RE-AIM approach, how real-word primary care practices might potentially use CAPTURE to: a) identify target populations (Reach); b) appraise optimal targeted respiratory history and symptoms consistent with clinically significant COPD (Effectiveness); c) integrate into practice workflow (Adoption); d) deliver changes and improvements to COPD care within the scope of real-world clinical practice (Implementation); and e) persist in use and quality over time (Maintenance).

Approximately 150 clinicians from 10 participating primary care practices will undergo detailed implementation investigation of the CAPTURE case finding model for clinically significant COPD. In addition, 200 enrolled participants will complete a 10-minute written CAPTURE opinion survey.

Using the RE-AIM framework and consistent phased qualitative analyses, this aim ascertains reach, impact, adoption, implementation and maintenance primary care feasibility recommendation characteristics of CAPTURE via pooled assessment of prescriber clinical staff, non-prescriber clinical staff, CAPTURE-eligible patients and local PBRN clinical quality improvement expertise from 10 primary care practices across 5 US regions.
