This paper contains the methodology and results of a focus-group type event held in Europe in 2012. The aim of the audit was to gain insight into the perceptions of people with COPD and their family members with the following objectives: to better understand the patient experience and therefore improve COPD care; to inform hospital discharge education materials; and to develop a standardized patient experience measure for future use. Qualitative results and researcher conclusions are included.
