Abstract

Pulmonary rehabilitation is a well-evidenced programme of therapy for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and includes the provision of breathlessness interventions, nutritional support and exercise therapy, all of which can be delivered by community nurses. Pulmonary rehabilitation is also considered a low cost intervention and can be delivered by healthcare professionals of varying disciplines. This article explores the clinical elements of pulmonary rehabilitation, as well as investigating the 'added value' provided by multidisciplinary teams in the community.
