Long-term management of COPD – Case based exam

Case-based Exam

To assess competence in long-term management of COPD, candidates are required to complete a summative multiple choice exam. You will have 40 minutes to answer 20 questions . The pass mark is 80%. If you do not meet the assessment criteria, don’t panic! You can resit as many times as you need.

During this exam, you will be assessed against the following learning outcomes: 

    • Prioritising high-value interventions for all patients with COPD, including smoking cessation, flu vaccination and pulmonary rehabilitation.


    • Targeting inhaled therapy for those who will benefit, and reducing unnecessary prescription of inhalers when there is no clinical benefit.


    • Empowering patients to take control of their COPD, and monitoring control during the COPD annual review.

The questions are presented through case studies, and each case study might span a series of questions. See below an example of how this Case Study and Question will sit on a page.

Click ‘Start quiz’ to get started. Your time limit will start immediately and will run continuously until 0:00. If you leave the page and return, the clock will not stop.

Once you have answered all the questions, you will be taken to an exam overview page where you will find your answers marked against the correct answers.

If you do not pass every question, you will be able to resit the exam.
