Functional status measurement in COPD: a review of available methods and their feasibility in primary care

Kocks, J. W. H., Asijee, G. M., Tsiligianni, I. G., Kerstjens, H. A. M., and van der Molen, T.
Aims: Guidelines advocate that improvement in functional status should be a major goal in COPD treatment. Many tools are available to assess aspects of functional status. This review aims to categorise systematically the available tools based on their construct (i.e. what the tool intends to measure) and to rate the tools for use in the primary care setting.
