Summary:
This article presents the BPOC 360 project of an non-governmental organization Pure Air. This project aims to improve the doctor - patient - hospital relationship and it addresses only to pulmonary doctors. Since the establishment of the association Aer Pur Romania the main purpose of the association members was to combat smoking. This project aims to achieve rapprochement between doctor and patient for the patient to come regularly to the doctor and to adhere to treatment.
26% of asthmatic patients are controlled by a doctor. Regarding respiratory diseases, it cannot talk about compliance to treatment, and experts say that the doctor - patient relationship has an important role. A possible explanation would be: the doctor has little time for consultation, he is bombarded by patients and he works under pressure so the family and the system suffers because the circle of information is not properly closed. More specifically, the doctor does not have time to talk with the patient and the patient does not receive the information he needs.
The project targets a total of about 17,000 patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and it will run over two years. It is intended that, after implementing this pilot program, the project can be extended to a larger number of patients.
