Abstract

Background and Purpose: There are over three millions Canadians living with chronic lung disease. Chronic lung disease is burdensome and debilitating to individuals and the health care system. Pulmonary Rehabilitation serves as a comprehensive intervention for individuals living with chronic lung disease. It improves overall quality of life, slows disease progression, enhances self-management abilities, and reduces hospitalizations and health care visits. The purpose of this practicum project was to develop relevant evidenced-based education modules to be utilized for teaching clients/families with chronic lung disease in a Provincial Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program. Development of Resource: An integrative literature review and consultation with key stakeholders was conducted to gather literature and information related to chronic lung disease, pulmonary rehabilitation, and client/family education. Ten education topics emerged, which guided the development of ten relevant evidence-based education modules to be utilized as a teaching resource. Pender’s Health Promotion Model (2006) and Knowles Adult Learning Theory (1970, 1984) served as a theoretical framework. Various teaching aids/activities were incorporated to augment the module information. Conclusion: The education modules will assist to improve client outcomes and confidence by enhancing self-management abilities. They will also serve as a resource to nurses working in the Pulmonary Rehabilitation setting, for education delivery. Ultimately, it is hoped that the developed modules will be utilized for teaching clients/families with chronic lung disease in a Provincial Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program.
