Task-specific Training for Patients With Acute Exacerbation of COPD

University of Granada

Information provided by (Responsible Party):

Marie Carmen Valenza

Brief Summary:

Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) experience a progressive deterioration in their quality of life. Task-specific training is a type of approach focused on chronic patients that allows the acquisition of new skills or improvement of lost skills. The overall objective of this project is to evaluate the effectiveness of a task-specific training program during hospitalization of patients with acute exacerbation of COPD. A randomized clinical trial will be conducted in patients hospitalized for COPD. Participants after signing informed consent will be randomized between the control group (standard treatment) and the intervention group (task-specific training program in addition to standard treatment). The task-specific training program is a multidisciplinary program divided into three blocks where specific tasks will be performed on symptom education, education of activities of daily living and improvement of physical capacity with the aim of reinforcing skills necessary for the self-management of COPD patients in the short, medium and long term.
