We would like to understand the experiences of people living with frailty and a chronic lung disease such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchiectasis or pulmonary fibrosis.
Frailty is a state of vulnerability where people become more affected than expected after small declines in their health, for example, after a mild infection. Having frailty may also make it harder to recover or ‘bounce back’ afterwards. People with frailty may walk at a slower speed, or experience more difficulty completing day-to-day tasks than people without frailty. Frailty is more common in people with multiple health problems and those of older age.
If you or someone you care for have been affected by chronic lung disease and frailty, we would really like to hear from you. By completing this short survey, you will be able to tell us about the issues that are most important to you to ensure our work focuses on the needs of people most impacted by frailty. This will help to improve future research and care.
Help us reach as many people as possible by sharing the survey link to anyone who may be interested in giving their views.
This survey was developed by a group of patient advocates and healthcare professionals as part of work by the European Lung Foundation and the European Respiratory Society Frailty Task Force.
