Definitions of health and health goals of participants in a community-based pulmonary rehabilitation program.
Improving health is the goal of community-based rehabilitation programs.
However, different conceptions of health between health care providers and participants inhibits communication, leads each group toward different goals, and causes dissatisfaction among participants who feel their individual goals are not being met.
This study compared definitions of health, and the health goals of participants in a nurse-managed community respiratory rehabilitation program with those of the program.
The majority of 132 adults with chronic respiratory disease defined health in terms of absence of disease and its symptoms, or as the ability to function within the community.
