TANDEM (A Tailored intervention for ANxiety and DEpression Management in COPD) is a randomised controlled trial led by Professors Stephanie Taylor & Hillary Pinnock and funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). We are investigating whether a cognitive behavioural approach (CBA) intervention, delivered prior to pulmonary rehabilitation, is effective at reducing mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression in patients with moderate to very severe COPD and in turn encouraging uptake and completion of the pulmonary rehabilitation programme.

The main trial is due to commence in May 2018. We are training and recruiting respiratory health care professionals with an interest in improving the psychological wellbeing of people living with COPD to deliver the CBA to the intervention arm one day a week through secondment from NHS
