    Abstract [en]

    The background of this study is based on a cooperation between the physiotherapy program at Mälardalen University and a hospital in the county of Södermanland. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether a four week treatment of COPD-school have had an impact on patient health, well being and physical capacity. The COPD-school consisted of four occasions in which different health care professionals gave patients information on subjects including; symptom impact, emotional experiences and the importance of physical activity. There were ten patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in stage two to four who participated in the intervention. The instruments for evaluation that were used were The St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire and six minute walk test. The results showed no significant difference in the survey or six minute walk test for the group after the intervention. Previous research has shown that psychosocial factors have a profound effect on patients with COPD and their wellbeing. The authors therefore believe that future research should focus on designing treatment for patients with COPD based on the biopsychosocial model.
