Physical activity is an important prognostic factor for patients with chronic respiratory diseases. Therefore, nowadays, it is more and more an outcome of interest both in clinical trials as well as an outcome used in clinical care. Next to the interest in physical activity as an outcome, providing direct feedback about the patient’s physical activity has been shown to be an essential part of coaching intervention aiming to enhance the physical activity behaviour.
In this webinar, the assessment of physical activity, both as an outcome as well as a way to provide feedback to patients, will be discussed.
This webinar will shed light on the objective physical activity assessment in patient with respiratory diseases. The audience will learn:
- Which devices can be used, which PA variables can be looked at, how data should be handled and interpreted; both when one aims to use physical activity as an outcome measure as well as with the aim of providing feedback to patients.
Lecture and Q&A session.
- Physical activity assessment
- Physical activity coaching
Following the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Decide which physical activity measure (including the device, the way of data handling and interpretation) to choose that matches best with its aim.

What is a webinar?
The webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting.
This webinar comprises a 40-minute lecture followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session. During the webinar you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls.
All participants will be able to hear the lecturer and see the slides throughout the presentation. As a participant you will be able to pose questions or discuss ideas with the other participants via the text chat facility and the speaker will respond to the questions via the microphone.
More information will be communicated in due course.
