On 15 June 1998, a workshop on asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was held at the WONCA conference in Dublin. Based on the current guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of asthma and COPD, new developments and present and future research projects were discussed. Based on these guidelines and the research findings, new developments were positioned. The final conclusion of this workshop was that there is a need to continue exchanging ideas at an international level. So an initiative to start a Scientific Group of Primary Care Research within the European Respiratory Society has been taken.
