Abstract: Study identified and assessed the measurement properties of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) and clinical outcome measures used in pulmonary rehabilitation to evaluate patients with acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) and that can be easily applied in a community setting. PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, and CINAHL databases were searched up to July 1, 2016, to identify relevant research. One reviewer extracted the data and 2 reviewers independently assessed the methodological quality of the studies and the measurement properties of the outcome measures by using the Consensus-Based Standards for the Selection of Health Status Measurement Instruments (COSMIN) recommendations. Twenty-three PROMs and 18 clinical outcome measures were found in 37 studies conducted in 19 different countries. The outcome measures most used were the St George Respiratory Questionnaire and the 6-Minute Walk Test. Thirty-two studies described the measurement properties of 22 PROMs and 7 clinical outcome measures. The methodological quality of the studies was mostly poor, and the measurement properties were mostly indeterminate. The outcome measure exhibiting more robust properties was the COPD Assessment Test. Findings indicate that a large variety of outcome measures have been used; however, studies on their measurement properties are needed to enhance the understanding of community pulmonary rehabilitation for AECOPD.
