Pulmonary rehabilitation is an effective treatment for people with a range of chronic lung diseases. In recent years, there have been substantial advances in the science underpinning pulmonary rehabilitation. Advances have been seen in the patient groups in whom it is indicated; in the breadth of programme content; in new methods of delivery; and not least in important outcomes. This Monograph brings together scientific and clinical expertise in pulmonary rehabilitation, with the aim of optimising its delivery in clinical practice.
