Did you know that you have a six to eight times greater risk of developing pneumonia if you have COPD?
Since COPD patients are at greater risk for developing pneumonia, we want to better understand the impact pneumonia has on the lives of our COPD community. Understanding the burden of pneumonia on the COPD community is important to help inform public health and prevention measures. Help us understand the burden of pneumonia by joining the online COPD and Pneumonia (CAP) study that is being conducted through the COPD Patient-Powered Research Network (COPD PPRN).
The CAP study is a series of simple online surveys. Participants will be compensated for their time.
How Do I Join?
COPD PPRN Member: If you are already a member of the COPD PPRN, sign into your account and take the CAP study pre-screener on your dashboard to see if you are eligible for the study.
Non COPD PPRN Member: If you are NOT a member of the COPD PPRN, you can follow these steps to join the COPD PPRN and then you will be provided access to CAP study information:
- Join the COPD PPRN. You will create an account, including a secure password and then you will be asked to review/sign the COPD PPRN informed consent.
- Once you join the COPD PPRN, the CAP study pre-screener will immediately be available on your COPD PPRN dashboard for you to complete.
- Once completed, you will learn if you meet the requirements to join the CAP study. If so, you will be able to move on and join the CAP study.
