Introduction: To our knowledge, no systematic reviews (SR) have focused on the efficacy of nursing interventions for improving breathlessness in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Aim: To present SR of nursing intervention studies that evaluated efficacy for improving breathlessness in adults with COPD.
Methods: A systematic search in CINAHL, PsycINFO, Embase, and Medline was conducted to identify studies with pre- and post-test design, clinical controlled trials or RCTs published from January 2000 to April 2015.
Conclusions: Results suggest that mixed self-management/rehabilitation interventions performed in hospital and home follow-up improve breathlessness in COPD. To strengthen the knowledge of nursing interventions improving breathlessness in COPD, more RCTs are need.
