    T Eaton
    Respiratory Services, Green Lane Hospital, Auckland, New Zealand
    Qual Life Res 14:575-85. 2005
    ..The COOP change in health domain improved very significantly. The COOP is a simple, reliable HRQL tool which proved valid and responsive in our study population of COPD patients and may have a valuable role in routine clinical practice...
