The research team at Queen Alexandra Hospital are conducting a new study looking at the inhaler technique of people with a lung condition. They are looking for people who use an inhaler to take part in this study. Studies show that up to 92% of people do not use their inhaler properly, and the correct inhaler technique is vital in managing your symptoms and underlying lung condition. As part of the study, if required, you will be taught how to use your inhaler correctly so you get the most out of it. The information we gather on how people use their inhalers could help us to give better advice on treatment for people with lung conditions in the future.

Volunteers must be

  • Age: 16+
  • Gender: Either
  • Staff/Student: Both
