Abstract: The multidisciplinary treatment Of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR), which includes exercise training, self-management education, and psychosocial and nutritional intervention, is now a standard of care for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and has been incorporated into major guidelines. We must now focus efforts on improving its impact and widening its applicability. What is the direction of PR; where does it fit ill the comprehensive care of the COPD patient; and how can clinicians best apply this important intervention? This was the charge of the round-table discussion, Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Moving Forward, involving 20 experts from North America and Europe, which was converted in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in early 2008. It is not meant to be ail exhaustive review; rather, this report summarizes the roundtable proceedings, while providing direction to best position PR into the continuum Of COPD care. By consensus, it was agreed upon that although PR is effective for other chronic respiratory diseases, the discussion focus was COPD since most of the evidence base and patient referral are for this disease. These proceedings provide insight into 3 broad areas appropriate for investigation or implementation: positioning PR in an integrated care model for COPD patients; improving the effectiveness of this intervention; and expanding the recognition, application, and accessibility to PR. it is the hope that this document will provide a catalyst for clinicians, investigators, and healthcare policy makers to help realize these goals as well as serve to suggest important areas for future research and development in PR.
