1. Introduction

I am studying at the University of Cambridge and undertaking research to understand the ways in which patients across Europe are engaging in decisions related to their treatment.

If you are a patient or a parent or caregiver for a patient who is currently prescribed medicines by a healthcare professional for allergy, asthma or Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), I would be most grateful if you could take 5 minutes to complete this questionnaire. Your responses will remain anonymous. This is a pilot study to inform further research but the results will be made available to the European Federation of Allergy and Airway Diseases Patients Association (EFA) and its member organisations.

When answering the questions, please consider only the medications that are prescribed to you by a healthcare professional (not over the counter or herbal remedies).
