This research used a computer-tailored intervention, which was previously evaluated in a large randomised controlled trial with smokers recruited from primary care (ESCAPE Trial), to provide personalised tailored feedback reports to smokers. We aimed to explore and investigate the views of smokers with and without COPD. especially their experiences of smoking and quitting and to adapt the computer-tailored intervention for use with smokers with COPD.
