I thought I would let you all know about a study that the Royal Brompton Hospital in London is working on with the British Lung Foundation.
We want to understand the best way to measure physical activity in people with COPD using monitors and questionnaires and how this changes in response to treatment.
The team also wants to look into the effect of short periods of inactivity in people in COPD, and find out if medications can improve the effect of pulmonary rehabilitation.
They are keen to recruit people from the local area and will be running a research information session where you can find out more. It is being held at:
Friday 30 July 2014
Clinical Research Facility in the Fulham Rd part of the Royal Brompton Hospital (on the corner of Dovehouse St).
If you would like to attend or find out more about these studies you will need to get in touch with the team at the Royal Brompton, either by calling 020 7351 8029 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
