Imagine how it would feel to struggle every time you take a breath. This is the lived experience of people with severe, persistent breathlessness. Such breathlessness is often a symptom of people with advanced diseases such as cancer and lung disease.

We would like to thank all of you who took part in the online survey designed for respiratory and palliative care physicians from different European countries

The questionnaire, which was prepared with the help of experts from the European Respiratory Society and the European Association for Palliative Care was based on three case vignettes in COPD, lung cancer and interstitial lung disease.

Our aim was to explore the management of chronic breathlessness among european physicians and how to improve care for patients suffering from refractory breathlessness, including the collaboration between respiratory medicine and palliative medicine. More than 510 respondents completed the survey. We are now in the process of analyzing the results. Thank you very much for your participation!
