Sleep apnoea representative giving presentation at ERS congress

Do you have COPD or sleep apnoea? Make a difference to others by sharing your experiences

ELF is looking for people living with COPD or sleep apnoea to be involved in patient advisory groups (PAGs for short) related to each of these diseases. This is a really exciting opportunity to influence research across Europe, connect with other people with COPD or sleep apnoea and ultimately improve the experience of people who have your condition.

You do not need any special knowledge or experience of working in groups like these to get involved – all you need is a little spare time each month, an internet connection and a good level of English. Any costs for travel to meetings or workshops that you attend as part of this group will be covered.

There is plenty of flexibility, so whether you only have time for a meeting (online) every few months, or whether you would like to take up opportunities to speak to scientists at events, we would love to hear from you. 

Read what two PAG members told us about their experiences of being part of a patient advisory group.
