Experimental: Psychological Intervention
In addition to the standard care, subjects are participating in a brief psychological support, which will include elements of psychological well-being's promotion and cognitive restructuring exercises (mindfulness).
Behavioral: Psychological Intervention
Active Comparator: Videos
The subjects assigned in the Control Group watch some videos relating to the management of their disease.
- Change from baseline in Quality of Life (QoL) in COPD patients at 3, 6 and 12 months as measured by EuroQoL (EQ5D) [ Time Frame: Baseline + After 3, 6 and 12 months following the recruitment ]EuroQoL or EQ5D, a simple and short questionnaire consists of two distinct sections: the first in which there are five items (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain / discomfort, anxiety / depression), concerning the status of health of the subject, which is required to indicate the severity level; the second section includes a visual-analogue scale instead represented graphically as a thermometer graduated from 0 (worst possible health status) to 100 (best possible health state), on which the respondent must indicate the level of perceived health at the time. All subjects will be assigned to psychometric assessment.
- Change from baseline in acceptance NIV in COPD patients at 3, 6 and 12 months as measured by weekly means and standard deviations of hours of use of Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) [ Time Frame: Baseline + After 3, 6 and 12 months following the recruitment ]It will be summarized by weekly means and standard deviations of hours of use of Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV). All subjects will be assigned to this assessment.
- Change from baseline in adherence NIV in COPD patients at 3, 6 and 12 months as measured by a modified version of the Beliefs About Medicine Questionnaire (BMQ) [ Time Frame: Baseline + After 3, 6 and 12 months following the recruitment ]A specific instrument, adapted to detect representations of NIV, it is being validated. It will be based on a modified version of the Beliefs about Medicines Questionnaire (BMQ) developed by Prof. Dr. Rob Horne et al. This tool is used to check the patient's beliefs regarding medications. It consists of two scales: Beliefs Specifications (10 items) and General Beliefs (8 items). In order to achieve the objectives of the study, we will use a modified version of the BMQ, adapted to detect representations of NIV. The unit of measure will be the scale that emerges from the test. All subjects will be assigned to psychometric assessment.
