Extract

Introduction: The COPD assessment test (CAT) has been developed in 2009 with the input of COPD patients to provide an easy to use quantified measure of health-related quality of life. A systematic review supported the reliability and validity of the CAT and found that the tool is responsive to interventions, although the minimal clinically important difference is not well established. Regarding the course of the CAT over time, only few data is available. Our aim was to investigate the course of the CAT over one year in a telehealthcare (THC) cohort and to evaluate its potential to predict exacerbations.
