The COPCORD Programme comprises three stages
Phase 1 - The initial stage consisted of administration of a simple questionnaire by primary health workers (PIIW) to a whole community as a basic screening technique.
Phase 2 - The positive responders to Phase 1 were assessed by the community nurse with a more elaborate questionnaire. ( In some COPCORD surveys Phase 1 & 2 were obtained )
Phase 3 - Those subjects with definite complaints were examined by a medical doctor with the rheumatological training. At this stage a diagnosis if clear was made on clinical ground and advice on prevention and possible health-care intervention suggested.
