Participation in life roles

Participation in life roles in people with COPD

Three generations walking

We are assessing a questionnaire that measures what people with COPD do to participate in their home and community life (for example, taking care of their home or having a meal with friends). We want to know if this questionnaire can detect changes in participation that occur after participating in a rehabilitation program. If you decide to participate in this study, you will meet with a researcher to complete some questionnaires and basic tests of physical function at the beginning (for 1 hour) and end (for 30 minutes) of your rehabilitation program. If you have COPD and will be attending either the inpatient or outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program at West Park, this study is for you!
