PURPOSE: The Exacerbation Prevention in Canada (EPIC) Program was a 2-part program to assess family physician (FP) clinical practices as they relate to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and a parallel survey to compare FP and patient perspectives on COPD management and exacerbations. The EPIC program was sponsored by a grant from Boehringer-Ingelheim and was led by a steering committee. The goal of the EPIC program was to identify gaps in care that could be optimized to improve diagnosis and management of COPD and related exacerbations.
