Plain English Summary

COPD is characterized by progressively irreversible airflow limitation and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Pulmonary Rehabilitation includes exercise training, education and behaviour change support and has been successfully employed in health care institutions to improve the quality of life of COPD patients. However, patient buy-in or motivation is a major determinant of the extent of the benefits Pulmonary Rehabilitation attendees will gain. Pulmonary Rehabilitation has not yet been routinely implemented in Sri Lanka, and it is important that patient uptake and completion is maximised if a culturally appropriate Pulmonary Rehabilitation programme is embedded within routine healthcare. Information will be collected from patients that are suitable for attending Pulmonary Rehabilitation regards their opinions and perceptions, to optimise uptake in a culturally appropriate Pulmonary Rehabilitation programme.

Similarly, it is important that the healthcare workers support the implementation of a clinical Pulmonary Rehabilitation programme. At present, the awareness and opinions of healthcare workers in Sri Lanka is unknown. Collecting this data will enhance the implementation of a Pulmonary Rehabilitation programme in Sri Lanka.
