Researchers at the University of Sheffield are looking for people with COPD to complete a survey, it will take approximately 30 minutes and your results will be kept confidential.
Research has shown that keeping physically active when you have COPD can have positive effects on your health and wellbeing. This physical activity could be through everyday activities like washing or climbing stairs, or taking part in exercise sessions, at the gym or swimming for example.
We know that factors such as breathlessness, other commitments, and hot or cold weather can make this difficult. It’s been suggested that technology like computers or mobile phones could be used help people with COPD stay active. We are trying to understand more about what people with COPD think about this. The results of the survey will help inform the development of a new technology aimed at helping people with COPD manage their condition better.
It doesn’t matter how much activity you currently do, or how much you use a computer, we are trying to get as broad a range of people with COPD as possible.
The survey can be done on paper and posted back (postage paid envelope provided), or can be completed online. For more information, or to take part, ring Kiera Bartlett on 01142 222 975, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or type this link into your internet browser surveymonkey.com/s/COPDtech...
