|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Official Title:||Effects on Functionality of Occupational Therapy Added to Physiotherapy in Severe COPD Patients|

Experimental: Occupational therapy group
35 patients diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease attending to the Hospital because of an exacerbation are going to be included in this group.
Other: Occupational therapy
Patients included in this group are going to receive an occupational therapy intervention 3 sessions after hospital discharge. The intervention is based on energy conservation techniques improving the execution of the activities of daily living.
No Intervention: Control group
35 patients diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are going to be included in this group. They are not going to receive other than standard care (medical and physical therapy intervention).
- Functionality [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 months ]Change from baseline to postintervention on functionality. This is assessed using two measures: the Functional Independence Measure and the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure. A follow-up is going to be performed at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after the occupational therapy intervention.
- Quality of life [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12months ]Changes from baseline to postintervention in quality of life. It is assessed using two questionnaires, the EuroQoL-5D questionnaire and the Health Questionnaire St. George. A follow-up is going to be performed at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after treatment.
- Anxiety and depression [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 months ]Changes from baseline to postintervention on anxiety and depression measured with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. Patients are going to complete this questionnaire composed of statements relevant to either generalised anxiety or depression. A follow-up is going to be performed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after the intervention.
- Activity levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 months ]The accelerometer Armband is going to be used for activity monitoring. It measures the intensity of the activity during 12 hours. A follow-up at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months is going to be performed after treatment.
- Dyspnoea [ Time Frame: baseline, 12 months ]Changes from baseline to postintervention in dyspnoea measured with Borg Scale. A follow-up is going to be performed at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months after occupational therapy treatment.
