5 What does this tell us about Pulmonary Rehabilitation? Its scope and value not widely known or understood Not just COPD – any chronic respiratory condition resulting in MRC 3-5 Combination of exercise (aerobic mostly) & education Minimum of 6 weeks (not including assessments) Exercise – individualised and progressive Breathing and coping strategies enabling patients to maximise potential Comprehensive education, self management, behaviour modification - MDT Peer support / carer involvement

6 Integration into respiratory services “ The quality standard for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) requires that services should be commissioned from and coordinated across all relevant agencies encompassing the whole COPD care pathway. An integrated approach to provision of services is fundamental to the delivery of high quality care to people with COPD. “ 8 People with COPD, meeting appropriate criteria, are offered an effective pulmonary rehabilitation programme.

7 First task: mapping of PR across London No London /national database or reporting system Reliant on local knowledge of what services /gaps present Commissioned as separate service? SLA / LES? Part of integrated pathways and services? Location of programmes – gym, hall, hospital Types of programme – cohort / rolling Duration, content, routine/post admission, culturally appropriate Efficiency – waiting times, DNA / UTA, % completed (what is completion?) Referrals as % of COPD population, repeat referrals, maintenance? Outcomes

8 Where we want to get to Provide standards/framework of PR tailored to London needs GP Commissioning – have dialogue and shape services PR as cornerstone of respiratory services Improve accurate diagnosis, case finding Increase referrals from primary care Promote PR and educate primary care on ‘ selling ’ PR to population Access for patients – ease, cultural awareness, timely Commission for value: redirect respiratory funds
