Embedding Pulmonary Rehabilitation in the Home and Community Setting

About this Research Topic

Physical activity and exercise training are cornerstones of COPD treatment but challenging to embed in long-term disease management and everyday life. Recent advances have been made to facilitate physical activity and exercise training in the home and community setting, such as minimal equipment interventions, telerehabilitation, or community parcours.

The goal of this Research Topic is to attract contributions on high-quality research that addresses the benefits and possible downsides, but also barriers and facilitators of physical activity and exercise training, behavior change, and self-management for COPD patients in the home and community setting. In addition, the goal is to investigate and discuss such home and community-based interventions in the context of continuity of care and chronic disease management of COPD.

We welcome, original quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods research, as well as systematic reviews and meta-analyses on physical activity and exercise, but also behavior change and self-management for COPD patients in the home and community setting. Specific sections could be created for pro-con debates, commentaries/editorials on accepted articles, and a strategic paper on research priorities.


Keywords: COPD, Rehabilitation, Minimal Equipment, Longterm, Disease Management


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
