The effects of maintenance schedules following pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with COPD

Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) provides benefit for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in terms of quality of life (QoL) and exercise capacity; however, the effects diminish over time. This local study evaluated a maintenance programme for patients who had completed PR.

The study findings have been published in BMJOpen 2014
