Interventions/Control_1 After receiving a diagnosis of COPD that indicated inhaler therapy, the patient was immediately interviewed by the pharmacist, who assessed the patient's ability to use an inhaler considering factors such as inhalation, grip and hearing and his or her understanding of what is required, as well as the patient's expectations and preferences, and practical considerations such as device portability, the need for visual and auditory confirmation of successful inhalation, daily dose frequency and medication cost.

Number of participants that the trial has enrolled 48
Results
The pharmacist-led inhaler choice group showed a significantly greater improvement in FEV1 from baseline to the end of the study than the physician-led inhaler choice group (0.38 L vs. 0.24 L, p = 0.02) . A subgroup analysis of the change in FEV1 for each drug class showed that the improvement was greater for the pharmacist-led inhaler choice group in all cases.

Baseline Characteristics
Patients background was 72 years old, male 83.3%, weight 59.9 kg, trough FEV1(baseline):1.60 L, Performance status 0/1/2/3: 71.7% / 21.7% /3.3%/3.3%. The clinical stage of COPD was Stage I / II / III / IV: 15% / 55.0% / 28.3% / 1.7%.
Participant flow
From April 1,2016 to March 31,2018,60 patients were diagnosed with stable COPD and started new inhalation therapy.Exclusion criteria was patients who received a second opinion but were not referred to our hospital(6),died(4),and pneumonectomy(2).At 26 weeks,48 patients undergoing lung function test was analyzed.
Adverse events
Adverse events were experienced by eight (13%) of the initial 60 patients in the pharmacist-led inhaler choice group, as follows: dry mouth (4 patients, 7%), hoarseness (3 patients, 5%) and ischuria (one patient, 2%).
Outcome measures
The study period for each patient was 26 weeks from the commencement of inhaler use (baseline). Prior to this, the patient's FEV1 was measured and his or her status was assessed using three scales (COPD Assessment Test, modified British Medical Research Council Dyspnoea Scale, Adherence Starts with Knowledge20).
