The relatively unexplored area of trigger identification in aiding a holistic assessment of needs within severe COPD has been debated in this study with professionals, patients and carers alike. However, the acceptability and feasibility of this approach has had varied responses from the perspectives of the different stakeholders involved in this process, in particular those of patients and carers. In response, any approach to aid a holistic assessment of needs in severe COPD in the future, will require careful exploration with these stakeholders about the initial concept of the research, with the aim of linking their understanding of what will enhance the patient experience to the design of the research process.
