Abstract [en]

Objective: To identify factors that hinder discussions regarding chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) between primary care physicians (PCPs) and their patients in Sweden. Setting: Primary health care centres (PHCCs) in Stockholm, Sweden. Subjects: A total of 59 PCPs. Design: Semi-structured individual and focus-group interviews between 2012 and 2014. Data were analysed inspired by grounded theory methods (GTM). Results: Time-pressured patient-doctor consultations lead to deprioritization of COPD. During unscheduled visits, deprioritization resulted from focusing only on acute health concerns, while during routine care visits, COPD was deprioritized in multi-morbid patients. The reasons PCPs gave for deprioritizing COPD are: Not becoming aware of COPD, Not becoming concerned due to clinical features, Insufficient local routines for COPD care, Negative personal attitudes and views about COPD, Managing diagnoses one at a time, and Perceiving a patient's motivation as low''. Conclusions: De-prioritization of COPD was discovered during PCP consultations and several factors were identified associated with time constraints and multi-morbidity. A holistic consultation approach is suggested, plus extended consultation time for multi-morbid patients, and better documentation and local routines.
