This report presents the results from an analysis of data derived from the pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) clinical audit component of the National Asthma and COPD Audit Programme (NACAP). This continuous audit captures the process of treatment in patients who are treated by PR services in England, Scotland and Wales for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
This report, which is the first to use continuous data collection, presents data for patients that were assessed between 1 March and 31 May 2019 and discharged by 31 August 2019. The data represent over 6,000 patients assessed for PR within a 3-month time period and includes patients who:
completed an initial assessment but were not enrolled on a PR programme, or
enrolled and completed the PR programme by 31 August 2019, or
enrolled but were known to have dropped out of their PR programme.
