There is reasonable evidence that pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is beneficial for alleviating the symptoms and disability brought about by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and can improve health status and quality of life. This cluster randomized control trial evaluates the efficacy of lay health workers (LHWs) to improve uptake and completion of PR in COPD treatment in the UK.
