Individuals with severe chronic pulmonary disease often life isolated with a high burden of symptoms. Nutritional risk and low quality of life are common, and both associated with increased societal cost and poor prognosis. COPD is a complex and progressive disease with changing clinical states that influences nutritional status and quality of life in different ways. The primary aim is to improve quality of life for individuals with severe COPD.

120 individuals are recruited from the outpatient clinic at Nordsjællands Hospital in Denmark to a randomized controlled trial with two parallel groups (intervention and control). The intervention will last for 3 months comprising four elements including nutritional plan, regular contact, informal caregiver/friendly reminder and a weight dairy.

We expect that the intervention will improve quality of life, nutritional status and prognosis.
