Project Description

This study is a three-arm multi-centre randomized controlled trial (RCT) of telerehabilitation for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The overall purpose of the RCT is to demonstrate whether long-term integrated telerehabilitation involving exercise training at home, telemonitoring, and education/self-management will prevent hospital readmissions, thus reducing healthcare costs, and improve patient status and quality of life.
