Patients with greater HRQL at baseline may experience greater physical functioning improvement following PR. Additional support for patients with lower HRQL (eg, adjunctive self-management interventions) may enhance PR outcomes, particularly for patients who report greater activity limitations. Alternatively, early referral to PR (ie, when less symptomatic) may also benefit physical function outcomes.
