This addition to the field of pulmonary rehabilitation will be used as a practical resource which demonstrates academic insight into new and emerging aspects of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) rehabilitation. This book provides a European perspective with international experts contributing to the various chapters. There have been significant advances in pulmonary rehabilitation in the last decade and this is reflected in the use of up to date research and clinical opinion. Comprehensive chapters address pulmonary rehabilitation from the perspective of the patient, nursing, physio, occupational and medical therapists. Recent evaluations concern nutritional implications in COPD, selection criteria and specificity of exercise. The book examines psycho-social influences on COPD and provides practical "best evidence" treatment advice. An exciting and promising "look to the future" by Professor Calverley concludes the book. "Pulmonary Rehabilitation: An Interdisciplinary Approach" is an integrated evaluation of the effect of pulmonary rehabilitation on patient care, with critical assessment of outcome tools and the important contribution of an interdisciplinary approach.
