The British Lung Foundation has launched a quick online test to see if chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients are receiving the best care and information about their condition. The simple questions are multiple choice and will give you an idea of whether you should review the quality of care you’re receiving and if you need a better understanding of your treatment.

Although the quiz is aimed at people in the U.K., the questions are relevant regardless of where you live. Topics such as ensuring you fully understand your disease, how lifestyle choices can affect COPD, the importance of a healthy diet, pulmonary rehabilitation, whether you understand how to take your medications correctly, how to manage COPD on a daily basis, support with quitting smoking, and how to spot a flare-up are all included in this short quiz.
