Survey finds COPD treatment in Norway inadequate

A cross-sectional survey by researchers from various hospitals in Norway found that only 5 percent of the Norwegian primary healthcare services (municipalities) had a multidisciplinary pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) programme for COPD patients. The researchers analysed 436 municipalities, covering 45 percent of the total population to find that group exercise training for all diagnoses (27%), reablement (25%) and home-care treatment by a physiotherapist and/or occupational therapist (24%) were the most frequently reported single interventions as part of a multidisciplinary PR programme.
