Description

Respiratory disease and ageing: the nosedive on quality of life

With Professor Abebaw Mengistu Yohannes

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) affect over 300 million and 200 million people worldwide, respectively. Unrecognised and/or inadequately treated respiratory diseases may lead to increased physical disability, anxiety and depression, healthcare utilization and impaired quality of life in old age.

This inaugural lecture will explore the impact of COPD on ageing and its consequences on patient’s physical activity, psychological well-being, quality of life, social interaction and healthcare care utilization. It also provides some clinical tips for clinicians and the way forward in how to manage these patients.
