Brief Summary in Lay Language

In recent years, rehabilitation aftercare has become an important topic in rehabilitation research and practice. This development was initiated by the lack of long-term effects after rehabilitation treatment and by the deficits identified in several reviews of aftercare recom-mendations and of actual practice of aftercare. Against this background, a new aftercare strategy was developed, “new Credo”, which focuses aftercare from the beginning of rehabilitation treatment. A substantial element of the concept is the resumption and maintenance of physical activity in everyday life of the rehabilitation patient. The goal of the present study was the evaluation of this concept in a sample of patients with COPD.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

In a longitudinal study with three points of measurement (before and after rehab treatment as well as after 12 months) the “new Credo” will be evaluated. One rehabilitation clinic includes patients in a sequential design. First patients of the control group will be included, thereafter the intervention group. During the study period the intervention group will be supervised by a person who is responsible for managing aftercare activities for patients (maintaining physical activities) and accompanied during teh next 10 months after rehab . Patients in the control group receive standard rehabilitation treatment according to general guidelines. Restriction of social participation is defined as primary outcome.
