Abstract: Introduction: COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a chronic ongoing progressive disease of the lower respiratory tract in the lungs. COPD result of increasing airway resistance secondary to bronchial mucosal edema or smooth muscle contraction. It affects the movements of air in and out of lungs. Pulmonary Rehabilitation is an exercise and education program that can greatly benefit those with lung disease such as asthma, emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Methodology: Present study aims to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding COPD and pulmonary rehabilitation among COPD patients in selected hospitals of District Hoshiarpur, Punjab. Quantitative approach with pre-experimental study was adopted to achieve objectives in this study. A sample of 60 COPD patients was selected using consecutive sampling technique. Structured knowledge was used to collect the data. Pre-test data was collected and structured teaching programme was administered to COPD patients and post-test data was collected. The data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: Results of study showed that mean pretest knowledge score was 13.0?3.974 lower than the mean posttest knowledge score 22.2?1.941 with mean difference of 9.2 and paired t value (t=18.23 and p=0.001) was highly significant at p<0.05. Findings indicated that structured teaching programme was effective in improving the knowledge regarding COPD and pulmonary rehabilitation among COPD patients. Conclusion: The findings of the study concluded that patients were having average knowledge regarding and structured teaching programme was effective in improving the knowledge regarding COPD and pulmonary rehabilitation among chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients. Study findings suggests that educational programmes can be implemented to enhance their knowledge which can help them to prevent from complications of COPD and maintain the functional activity of the lungs among COPD patients.
