New 2013 Guidelines on Pulmonary Rehabilitation

A fresh guideline on pulmonary rehabilitation has been published this week, helping professionals, patients and the public understand what to expect from a pulmonary rehabilitation programme.

The new guideline, produced by the European Respiratory Society and the American Thoracic Society, supports the use of pulmonary rehabilitation as an essential part of the care offered to people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other long-term lung conditions.
For the first time, the European Lung Foundation has produced a patient version of this official ERS guideline. 
This document can be freely downloaded to help increase public understanding and awareness of pulmonary rehabilitation and what to expect from the programme.
