We need your opinions about your condition and what’s important to you


#1

Join us in one of a few focus group sessions to discuss chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and overlap syndrome.
The American Sleep Apnea Association and the COPD Foundation are hosting a series of focus groups by phone, online, and a special in-person meeting to discuss chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, obstructive sleep apnea and overlap syndrome for a new patient-centered research project we are launching.We would like to receive feedback from individuals on their therapy and disease management; more specifically, the goal of the focus groups is to outline common treatment barriers. By participating in a focus group you can help us shape future research and potentially influence future treatment options! There will be 4-10 people in each focus group.
There are both phone and online focus group opportunities that will last approximately one hour. A person may participate in only one. In person focus groups will last up to two hours. All participants will be compensated for their time.
If you, a family member or friend is living with obstructive pulmonary disease, obstructive sleep apnea or overlap syndrome please call a member of the COPDF team at (866-731-2673 Ext. 210) or email at ebenkert@copdfoundation.org to learn more and sign up for one of the focus groups that will take place later this year! Please help us improve research and treatments.
