1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

We want to know:
1. How accurately patients report their ability to do physical activity and,
2. How accurately doctors (such as your general practitioner) predict a patient's physical activity capacity
We aim to investigate this by comparing patient and doctor questionnaires to a patient's actual physical capacity during an exercise stress test
