EBPI Researchers Funded to Evaluate Home-based COPD Exercise Program

EBPI Senior Researcher Anja Frei, together with her colleagues Dr. Thomas Radtke and Kaba Dalla Lana, were recently awarded funding from the Swiss Lung League. Their two-year, multi-center randomized controlled trial will examine the long-term effects of a home-based, minimal-equipment exercise program for persons with COPD. The results will help determine whether this easily-accessible intervention increases the health-related quality of life and physical symptoms of COPD patients and is therefore appropriate for widespread implementation to improve the health of the public.
