This assessment will help us measure the impact of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is having on your wellbeing and daily life. Your Grade will be used by us to help improve the management of your COPD and get the greatest benefit from treatment.
We may also recommend that you attend Pulmonary Rehabilitation depending on how your COPD is affecting you. Pulmonary rehabilitation aims to reduce the disability and improve the quality of life in patients with COPD. It is individually tailored and is highly recommended.
90 per cent of patients who complete a pulmonary rehabilitation programme have higher activity and exercise levels, and report an improved quality of life.
