To the editor,
We thank the authors for their interest in our study, which showed that higher scores on the PRAISE tool predict positive changes in physical activity behaviours following pulmonary rehabilitation [1]. However the PRAISE was not responsive to change following pulmonary rehabilitation. We agree with the authors that this could be due either to limitations in the instrument or limitations in the intervention.
