Objective: to determine the level of therapists’ basic knowledge about the management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Material and methods. This study analyzed an anonymous multicenter survey within the ASCO project for the management of COPD patients. Results. The study revealed an insufficiently high level of therapists’ knowledge about the management of patients with COPD. When answering the questions, the respondents showed the smallest results in selecting laboratory and instrumental ones showing evidence of severe COPD symptoms; in indicating drugs for the basic therapy of COPD with obvious symptoms and a high risk of exacerbations; in selecting the clinical group (type) of COPD for the following criteria: 60% forced expiratory volume in one second, one exacerbation per year, mMRC-1, and CAT-9 and in choosing the appropriate statement regarding COPD treatment/control. Conclusion. An analysis of the study results revealed an insufficient level of specialists’ basic knowledge about COPD, which, in the authors’ opinion, necessitates additional educational measures in this area among the practitioners.
