Dyspnea and fatigue, the two most common symptoms experienced by patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, are believed to result in decreased activity levels and poor quality of life. This study was carried out to determine effect of implementation of teaching modules about physiological and psychological parameters on expected clinical outcomes of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A quasi experimental research design was utilized to achieve the aim of this study. This study was conducted at chest department of Menofia University Hospital. A purposive sample of 140 adult patients, three tools was used for data collection. Bio socio demographic assessment questionnaire, physiological measurement tool and anxiety scale. There were highly statistical significant differences between study and control groups post one and two months of teaching regarding dyspnea, fatigue, cough vital signs and anxiety. Also it was found that there was a positive correlation between dyspnea, fatigue and anxiety. A teaching carried out for the patients of the study group had positive effect on dyspnea, fatigue, cough, vital signs and anxiety and there was a positive correlation between dyspnea, fatigue and anxiety. Initiate outpatient hospital based pulmonary rehabilitation program. A booklet should be available and distributed for all patients with choronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
