Introduction
PhD research student in the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare at Coventry University. Research interests include health, chronic illness, behaviour change, physical activity and technology. My current PhD research is exploring the experiences people with COPD using apps and wearable for monitoring physical activity. @laurawilde24 www.laurawilde.co.uk

Article
Physical activity monitoring technology (e.g. smartphone apps or wearables) can objectively record physical activity levels, potentially support interventions to increase activity levels, and support the self-management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Insight into patients’ experiences of monitoring physical activity is needed to i...

Objective This study aimed to evaluate reviews that have been posted publicly on the app ‘MapMyRun’ to investigate which features were associated with usage of the app. A secondary aim was to determine whether MapMyRun consisted of specific behaviour change techniques that would have increased the likelihood of users being engaged with the app. Me...

Objective: Monitoring of physical activity and sedentary behaviours by mobile phone applications (apps) and wearable technology (wearables) may improve these health behaviours. This systematic review aims to synthesise the qualitative literature on the barriers and facilitators of using apps and wearables for monitoring physical activity and/or se...

Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease where symptoms include breathlessness and coughing. Physical activity can increase life expectancy, reduce hospital admission and improve quality of life. Previous research on activity monitors (i.e., apps or wearables) has focussed on monitoring physical activit...

RATIONALE: Physical activity (PA), sedentary behaviour (SB) and sleep are important lifestyle behaviours associated with chronic respiratory disease (CRD) morbidity and mortality based predominantly on evidence from high income countries. As the majority of the global burden of CRD is in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), it is important to...

Symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) include breathlessness, coughing and/or wheezing. Activity monitors (e.g., apps or wearables) could support interventions to increase activity levels. This qualitative scoping review explored the experiences of people with COPD using technology for monitoring physical activity. Scientific dat...

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease where symptoms include breathlessness and coughing. Previous research has focussed on monitoring physical activity, so research is needed to understand the experiences of using monitoring technology in everyday life. This study explored the experiences of people with COPD using activity...
Article

Physical activity (PA), sedentary behaviour (SB) and sleep are important lifestyle behaviours associated with chronic respiratory disease (CRD) morbidity and mortality. These behaviours need to be understood in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) to develop appropriate interventions. Purpose: Where and how have free-living PA, SB and sleep da...

The COVID-19 outbreak made using public transport potentially unsafe for risk of catching and transmitting the virus. UK anxiety is high with lockdowns preventing a normal way of life for over a year. A lack of ability to travel freely causes numerous declines in quality of life including social isolation and poor physical and mental health. People...

Introduction: Malawi has a substantial burden of chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) which cause significant morbidity and loss of economic productivity, affecting patients, families and health systems. Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is a highly recommended non-pharmacological intervention in the clinical management of people with CRDs. However, Mal...

Background Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease with no cure. Regular physical activity can increase life expectancy and quality of life. Monitoring technology (e.g., smartphone apps or wearables) can potentially increase activity levels and support the self-management of COPD. However, insight into patients’ e...

Background A high proportion of hypertensive patients remain above the target threshold for blood pressure, increasing the risk of adverse health outcomes. A digital intervention to facilitate healthcare practitioners (hereafter practitioners) to initiate planned medication escalations when patients’ home readings were raised was found to be effect...

This paper illustrates a rigorous approach to developing digital interventions using an evidence-, theory- and person-based approach. Intervention planning included a rapid scoping review which identified cancer survivors’ needs, including barriers and facilitators to intervention success. Review evidence (N=49 papers) informed the intervention’s G...

Introduction Low quality of life is common in cancer survivors. Increasing physical activity, improving diet, supporting psychological well-being and weight loss can improve quality of life in several cancers and may limit relapse. The aim of the randomised controlled trial outlined in this protocol is to examine whether a digital intervention (Ren...

Objective Physical activity (PA) and a healthy diet can improve the well-being of cancer survivors. However, cancer survivors often do not engage in these behaviours. This study aimed to explore barriers and facilitators to engaging in these behaviours following cancer treatment. Methods During the development of a web-based intervention to enhan...

Abstract: There are over two million mobile phone applications (apps) available to download from the Apple app store, with approximately 3% in the Health and Fitness category. Access to personalised data from apps and wearable technology (wearables) has the potential for individuals to become more aware of their health, facilitate healthy behaviour...

Pain-related cognitive biases have been demonstrated in chronic pain patients, yet despite theoretical predictions are rarely investigated in combination. Combined cognitive biases were explored in individuals with chronic headache (n=17) and pain-free controls (n=20). Participants completed spatial cueing (attentional bias), sentence generation (i...

Introduction: Components other than the active ingredients of treatment can have substantial effects on pain and disability. Such 'non-specific' components include: the therapeutic relationship, the healthcare environment, incidental treatment characteristics, patients' beliefs and practitioners' beliefs. This study aims to: identify the most powe...

Project
WP1. To develop a culturally acceptable PR intervention that will reduce the disability associated with chronic lung disease. This addresses an unmet need and would make a significant and sustainable contribution to the wellbeing of individuals with chronic lung disease. In parallel, we will work with healthcare professionals to ensure that they are able to deliver high quality PR programmes. WP2. To develop an international, robust and secure PR dataset. This database will ensure a common way to record information about lung disease and rehabilitation, and provide a rich resource for future research projects. WP3. WPs 1 and 2 will form the basis of WP3: research capacity development. Training will be delivered locally to help health professionals to deliver PR effectively, develop data management and other health research skill.
