Help us find out more about remote care for people with COPD

Share your experience of healthcare delivered remotely.

We are asking you to complete an online questionnaire about your experience with remote specialty COPD care that would usually have been provided face-to-face in hospitals or specialty community settings over the last three months.

Your views will help us understand how people with COPD are accessing care remotely for their condition during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how well it is working.

The questionnaire should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Take part in the survey

Who should fill out the survey?

  • If you are someone who lives with COPD  (or a carer on their behalf) who has accessed specialty COPD care in the last three months
  • or a healthcare professional who provides specialty care to people with COPD

We want to understand:

  • How are people with COPD accessing specialty care during the pandemic?
  • What works well and what can be improved?
  • How can we use these insights to improve remote communication?

Who is running the survey?

This work is funded by THIS Institute, which is based at the University of Cambridge, and is carried out in collaboration with colleagues from the Royal College of Physicians.

THIS Institute’s goal is to strengthen the evidence base for improving the delivery of healthcare in the NHS.

What will happen to my survey answers?

After you complete the questionnaire, you will be asked for your permission to be contacted again. If you consent, you will be contacted in 4–6 weeks’ time when the team have analysed everyone’s responses to the questionnaire, to ask if you would like to take part in a process to identify priorities for improving remote consultations and make them as helpful as possible.

The findings will be shared with all participants. Results will be presented in terms of groups of individuals and any individual data will be anonymous.
