Implementation science in action

Pulmonary rehabilitation in Kyrgyzstan by Carey Marks

  • Seminar Room 2/3, John Bull Building, Plymouth Science Park

Save event

Following on from the successful implementation study of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in Uganda, rehab programmes have been trialled in Crete, Vietnam and Kyrgyzstan. 

Greece, Vietnam and Kyrgyzstan all have a high prevalence of COPD, but PR programmes are absent. The aim of this work package was to establish how a PR programme for people with chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) can be optimised and delivered to improve quality of life and exercise capacity in these three countries.

This session by Rupert Jones will focus on the cultural adaption of PR in Kyrgyzstan. There will be a short talk including a film and lots of discussion!

All welcome. Contact laura.gill@plymouth.ac.uk to register your attendance.
