The IPCRG identified 145 primary care respirsatory research needs in five domains: asthma, allergic rhinitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, tobacco dependence, respiratory infections. We have subsequently prioritised these using an international e-Delphi exercise.
Online-only and open access, npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine is the only fully-indexed scientific journal devoted to the management of respiratory diseases in primary care.

The IPCRG supports new researchers from primary care to develop the skills for respiratory research

Unbiased BIOmarkers in PREDiction of respiratory disease outcomes is a 5-year European Commission funded research project to develop a genetic handprint for severe asthma to improve the personalisation of treatment. IPCRG is a dissemination partner
The Research Sub-committee brings together a group of International Primary Care Respiratory Group members who are practising GPs and academics who are dedicated to reviewing and conducting primary care respiratory initiatives.
The Expert Research Faculty consists of international scientific experts who can be consulted for scientific support.
