Join our study to help people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Take part in our research to help us create a digital mindfulness tool to help people manage the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

We are a team of psychologists and respiratory clinicians developing a digital mindfulness tool designed to help people with COPD.

We hope this will help those with the disease to manage its symptoms, which include breathlessness and anxiety.

We are looking for patient representatives to work with us to ensure the tool is engaging for people with COPD to use.

Take part in this research

We are recruiting participants until 30 August 2022.


To take part in this study, you must:

  • have been diagnosed with COPD
  • be aged 18 years or over

You don’t need any specialist knowledge of mindfulness or digital technologies.

What you’ll do

You will be invited to one-to-one online or telephone meetings with a member of the research team, and/or take part in online group meetings with other COPD patients. You can choose whichever option you are most comfortable with.

What you'll get for taking part in the study

If you take part we will reimburse you £25 per hour.
