The California Society for Pulmonary Rehabilitation (CSPR) is a nonprofit organization, conceived in 1986 and incorporated in 1990 after several years of networking and planning by pulmonary rehabilitation health care professionals in California. The CSPR also welcomes Out-of-State members.

This State Society is comprised of Physicians, Respiratory Care Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Exercise Physiologists, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, as well as other health care professionals.

Goals of CSPR:

  • Provide an environment for networking among professionals caring for the complex needs of pulmonary patients.
  • Provide educational opportunities to improve knowledge and skills for clinical practice and research applications.
  • Promote and support guidelines for pulmonary rehabilitation programs.
  • Promote awareness of pulmonary health and rehabilitation for the patient, community, and health care professional.
  • Work closely with other professional organizations to promote common interests.
  • Nurture development and enhance the professional image of practitioners working with pulmonary patients.
