About

The aim of this study is to explore whether singing is a useful way of supporting people in South Devon to self manage aspects of their COPD and associated social isolation. It will also investigate whether a model of bespoke respiratory community choirs provides a useful service for our local community. The study will look at the impact of singing on breathing, wellbeing, frailty and engagement.

Description:
Singing for Wellness will use an uncontrolled observational study design.
