Exercise handbook

The exercise handbook builds on guidance provided in the self-management plan to offer a practical guide to exercise.

The handbook includes space for the patient to keep a record of their exercises and level of fitness, helping them monitor any changes.

The exercise handbook covers:

  • How exercise can help
  • How to exercise safely
  • Positions to ease breathlessness
  • Weekly home exercise record
  • Daily walking record
