Telemediated team training for patients with severe and highly severe COPD

Many patients with severe and highly severe COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) refuse participating in physical training away from home. As a consequence of this, their function level may decline, they will face problems with doing ordinary daily activities and they may be rehospitalised.

To facilitate team training for this group of patients, telemediated, supervised team training in their private home has been developed and practiced in different parts of the country.

The main theoretical approach for telemediated team training is Critical Psychological Practice Research and Science and Technology Studies, including Participant Network Theory.

AIM

The aim of the PhD project is to study what telemediated team training means to patients with severe COPD and their relatives in their everyday life, and also to the practice of the health professionals:

  • The patient: What does the offer of training mean for daily activities, and which role does the training play in the physical activities of the patients – after the termination of the training as well?
  • The relative: What does the offer of training mean for their role, assignments and relationship with the patient?
  • The health professionals: Which does the offer of training mean for their work with the patient group?
