INSPIRED is an outreach program for patients and families living with advanced COPD . It was modelled on the Cambridge Breathlessness Intervention Service (BIS): a community-functioning secondary care service developed and evaluated in a collaboration between the Department of Public Health & Primary Care (Dr Morag Farquhar) and the CUHNFT Palliative Care Team (Dr Sara Booth) using the MRC framework for complex interventions.

INSPIRED began in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is now being rolled out in 19 pilot sites across Canada supported by a federally funded quality improvement collaborative.
