Patients with COPD frequently are cared for by nonrespiratory specialists, and specialty might affect the approach to COPD.1,2 The Linking Innovation and Knowledge in COPD (LINK) study comparatively assessed the clinical practice of three categories of Italian specialist physicians: 80 pneumologists, 81 geriatricians, and 82 internists completed an online questionnaire (e-Appendix 1) that explored these specialists’ perceptions of COPD on the basis of individual experience and professional course. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, and discriminant analysis was used to compare the approach to COPD of the three specialist groups.3,4 Pneumologists were more aware of specific pathophysiologic aspects of COPD, such as the clinical impact of dynamic hyperinflation (pneumologists, 86%; geriatricians, 54%; internists, 61%) and the phenotypic variants of COPD. Geriatricians more frequently performed multidimensional assessment of patients with COPD (geriatricians, 76.5%; pneumologists, 24%; internists, 28%). COPD-specific health status indexes were routinely used by 54% of pneumologists, 57% of geriatricians, and 45% of internists. Seventy-five percent of geriatricians routinely assessed activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living compared with 35% of pneumologists and 39% of internists.
