European Lung Foundation (ELF) has launched a new survey to understand the experiences of people living with frailty and chronic lung disease. 

Frailty is a state of vulnerability where people become more affected than expected after small declines in their health, for example, after a mild infection. Having frailty may also make it harder to recover or ‘bounce back’ afterward. 

We are asking people living with frailty and chronic lung disease including TB to share their experiences. By completing a short survey, will help us to understand the issues most important to patients to improve future research and care. 

The survey is available in 9 languages: 

English, Deutsch, Español, Ελληνικά, Hrvatski, Italiano, Magyarul, Nederlands 

The closing date is 22 October 2021

Please help us reach as many people as possible by sharing the survey link with your patient community and anyone who may be interested in sharing their views.  You can find more information on our website and in the translated advertising leaflets available. 

If you have any questions, please contact Courtney (
