Summary
Brief summary
The aim of this project is to examine the short and long term effects of an 8 week, twice
weekly, outpatient exercise training program for people with bronchiectasis. Participants
will be randomly allocated to undergo a supervised exercise training program at The Alfred,
Austin Hospital or Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

The hypotheses of this study are:

1. Patients with bronchiectasis who complete an exercise program will have a higher
exercise capacity and better quality of life and these improvements will be sustained
for up to 12 months after completion

2. Exercise training will significantly reduce the incidence of pulmonary exacerbations,
use of antibiotics and rate of hospitalisation
