Summary
Brief summary
Participants are invited to take part in a research study into ‘difficulties with thinking and memory’ in people with COPD. The objective is to investigate the incidence of cognitive impairment (difficulties with thinking and memory) in people with COPD who attend a pulmonary rehabilitation program compared to an age-matched normal population.

Participants (those with COPD and the age matched normal population) will be asked to complete a questionnaire designed to assess cognitive function. the questionnaire is the MoCa (described earlier in the application)
