Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program: Prince George
The program consists of graduated clinically supervised, individualized exercise programs (aerobic and strengthening); as well as education, delivered in a group setting in conjunction with the exercise sessions. It is designed to help patients improve their symptoms, improve their quality of life, and reduce the risk of COPD exacerbations and hospitalizations.
Please have your Physician fill out the referral form as you will be required to have a referral before you begin participating in the program.
Participants are required to have had recent Spirometry (within the last 5 years) confirming COPD diagnosis.
