Search and risk stratification tools
We have developed defined search and stratification tools to help primary care teams identify people with long-term conditions. These tools can be adapted to meet local preference if required. These tools stratify patients into low, medium and high risk of deterioration.
These easy-to-deploy tools have been designed for the management of patients with asthma, COPD, diabetes and hypertension. The tools have been developed by our clinical team, working with the Clinical Effectiveness Group based at Queen Mary University of London. The search criteria used draws on national guidance.
To access these tools, please complete the form below.
The following guides provide an overview of the criteria that have been used in our search tools.
How to run the search
Watch our demonstration videos which provide details of how to run searches and take you through these tools in action – we will use asthma and COPD as examples. Use these in conjunction with the search guides above.
