VCAPS 3- A prospective cohort study
About VCAPS 3
The VCAPS 3 study will pilot the interventions that will be evaluated in the Randomized Controlled Trial. This involves an integrated public health strategy to manage chronic respiratory disease (CRD) and reduce smoking in three District Clinics in Vietnam.
315 patients with respiratory disease (COPD/ashtma) was recruited and followed up in the study. Most of them will finish their 12 month-follow up in June, 2020.
221 smokers were recruited to receive smoking cessation support during 12 months. The effectiveness of the intervention will be measured by cotinine tests on those who report quit smoking within at least 30 days at 12 month follow up.
