The Impact of Health Anxiety in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Studies show that having a chronic physical health condition can increase someone’s worry about their health. We want to explore whether having a COPD diagnosis increases anxiety about one’s health. Understanding this can improve what support we offer to people with COPD.
We are looking for people without COPD or a chronic health condition to take part. You would be first invited to complete a short screening phone call to check you are eligible to take part and answer any questions you may have. You would then meet with a researcher in Oxford to complete 6 questionnaires and a short walking task. These questionnaires would ask you about your mood, lifestyle and health. It should take no more than 1 hour of your time.
