The R-CAT was developed for use by all those practitioners caring and providing services for patients diagnosed with asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). It was therefore agreed that the impact measurement should focus on the nurses and midwives who have a key responsibility for caring with patients with long term conditions, specifically asthma and COPD, in the acute, community and primary care settings.
