Abstract

The design of new interventions to improve health care for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) requires knowledge about what patients with an acute exacerbation experience as important and useful. The objective of the study was to explore patients' experiences of an early discharge hospital at home (HaH) treatment programme for exacerbations in COPD.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 11. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 September 2012.
All research outputs
#1,296,062
of 12,410,450 outputs
Outputs from BMC Pulmonary Medicine
#94
of 952 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#13,105
of 125,171 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Pulmonary Medicine
#1
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,410,450 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 952 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.7. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 125,171 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 89% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
