Although bronchiectasis is now receiving growing recognition and consideration, we are aware that over past decades many people with bronchiectasis have not been properly diagnosed and treated.
We want to learn about the difficulties you faced up until you received a diagnosis, as well as how helpful you found treatment during this time.
In particular we would like to know more about your experiences and challenges of performing regular chest clearance/physiotherapy (airway clearance), as well as your choice and use of devices for inhalation of prescribed drugs if applicable.
The survey has been developed by bronchiectasis healthcare experts and patients with bronchiectasis from across Europe and its findings will help to improve diagnosis, treatment and education for bronchiectasis.
The survey is for people with bronchiectasis and their relatives to complete and is available online in English, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Airwaysclearance
and in Hebrew at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XQBHQWH
The surveys will remain live until 31 January 2021.
Please circulate the survey link to anyone who might be willing to complete the survey.
