Abstract

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) represents a model of respiratory degenerative chronic disabling disorder. In Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR), occupational approach is aimed at restoring patient's abilities at best in the social, familiar and working scenarios, and it is an essential part of a good PR Programme. To evaluate first occupational disability and then the occupational outcome of a PR programme, we need appropriate tools. London Chest Activity of Daily Living (LCADL) ed il Manchester Respiratory Activities of Daily Living (MRADL) are two questionnaires with such characteristics available in the literature. Our aim was to translate into Italian and adapt to the Italian social reality these two questionnaires. This may be a preliminary albeit necessary step to obtain reliable data on the occupational outcome of PR programmes in Italy.
