  6. 6. Initial wish in 2012/13 “Set up a short-term initiative that will raise the quality and profile of real-life (respiratory) research across the research, political and public arenas” But… 2014 required REG to recognise its longevity…
  7. 7. 2014: REG continued to grow… April 2014 95 Dec 2014 125 April 2014 5 Dec 2014 10 COLLABORATORS SUPPORTERS
  8. 8. 2014: Recognising our longevity (II) Initial Structure Constitution+
  9. 9. 2014: Recognising our longevity (II) More formal structure required: • Oversight Committee; • Council; Special Interest Leads; • Society Leads; • Regional Leads; • Guideline Leads; • Accreditation Committee; Manuscript & Research Review
  10. 10. 2014: “Manageable chunks” Topic- specific working groups Child Health Small airways disease Asthma/CO PD overlap syndrome COPD Control Adherence Database validation Allergy IPF / ILD Standards – REG/EAACI Taskforce Validation/St andardisatio n of Coding
  11. 11. 2014: Formalised call for research ideas • Research Pin board • Studies shortlisted for funding as: 1. REG Studies (non- commercial, with multi- sponsors or hands-off grant); 2. REG Collaborations (single-sponsor, non- commercials study), or 3. Commercial Study (commercial/product- specific study).
  12. 12. 2014 Research: understanding real practice • Asthma State of the Union • Rationale: poor control may contribute significantly to the health and economic consequences of asthma • A study characterising asthma severity, treatment and control among patients from 153 UK primary care practices. Addresses questions around: o Exacerbation risk at different GINA treatment step o Possible over-treatment of patients (at higher GINA step) o Differential outcomes for smokers/non-smokers • Submitted to EACCI 2015; Manuscript in development CONTROL RISK?
