Tandem research project

Calling respiratory health professionals; Join the TANDEM study to develop new skills

A multi-centre, four year study, supported by CLAHRC North Thames offers a great development opportunity for NHS professionals to improve the care of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients.

The TANDEM (Tailored intervention for ANxiety and DEpression Management in COPD) study is investigating whether one to one Cognitive Behavioural sessions with trained respiratory healthcare professionals delivered before attending PR helps improve the emotional and physical health of people with moderate to very severe COPD and anxiety/or depression.

NHS professionals from all care sectors who have some experience of managing COPD patient can join the study on a secondment basis and receive free training to deliver the intervention.
