Description:
This study evaluated the effectiveness of a structured education pulmonary rehabilitation programme (SEPRP), delivered at the level of the general practice, on the health status of people with COPD. A cluster randomized controlled trial was employed with the General Practice as the unit of randomisation. All adults with a diagnosis of COPD were eligible to participate. The experimental group received a SEPRP, designed in consultation with people with COPD, experts, general practitioners and practice nurses. It was delivered 2 hours per week over 8 weeks by practice nurses and physiotherapists. The control group received 'usual care'. The Primary outcome measure was health status measured by the Chronic Respiratory Questionnaire (CRQ) at 12-14 weeks. 32 clusters were randomised equally between groups. Participants allocated to the intervention group had statistically significant higher mean CRQ Dyspnoea (Mean 4.42 (SD 1.36) vs Mean 3.85 (SD 1.45), baseline and covariate adjusted mean difference (MD) 0∙49, 95% CI 0∙20, 0.78) and CRQ Physical scores (Mean 4.62 (SD 1.10) vs Mean 4.12 (SD1.29), baseline and covariate adjusted MD 0∙37, 95% CI 0∙14, 0.60). The SEPRP delivered in the primary care setting was therefore found to be effective in improving the health status of people with COPD.
