Abstract

Although historically considered a neglected disease, bronchiectasis has become a disease of renewed interest over recent decades in light of an increase in prevalence and a substantial burden on healthcare systems. In 2010, the British Thoracic Society (BTS) published guidelines on the management of bronchiectasis in adults, along with specific quality standards. To date, these represent the only quality standards available in Europe. These have been tested over a number of years in the UK with progressive improvements in the standard of care. No national guidelines are available in Italy and no indications on which guideline should be followed have been given by the Italian Society of Respiratory Medicine (SIP). There are limited published data on the quality of bronchiectasis care in Europe outside of the UK. The BTS standards have not been tested in continental Europe or in Italy, where information on characteristics and management of bronchiectasis patients are lacking.
