As we mark World COPD Day on 15 November, we highlight the benefits of doing a pulmonary rehabilitation course which can assist with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other lung conditions.  We offer pulmonary rehabilitation for free at our Kyneton site. The program involves one-on-one assessment, education sessions and a personalised exercise schedule tailored to your needs.

Our team includes a pulmonary rehabilitation nurse, a dietitian, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.  They deliver a program designed to support you in managing your symptoms, to improve your health and help you stay well.

Education topics include:

  • How the lungs work
  • Medicines – what they do and how to use them
  • How exercise can help improve your symptoms
  • Nutrition and living well
  • Energy conservation
  • Airway clearance
  • Managing breathing issues

  • Interstitial lung disease
