‘I ♥ my Pulmonary Rehabilitation’
‘A patient’s prospective on why they ♥ Pulmonary Rehabilitation’
Lung Foundation Australia knows that Pulmonary Rehabilitation can dramatically improve a person’s quality of life but we want everyone else to know about it too. We’d like your help to spread the word about all the benefits.
There are many health professionals (including but not limited to; physiotherapists, nurses and exercise physiologists) who are involved in the delivery of Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs. This dedicated group provide enormous support to the patients they work with and while loved and appreciated by their patients, can often go unrecognised in their day to day life.
We would like to recognise the different health professionals and their roles within pulmonary rehabilitation and the positive impact they contribute to a person’s quality of life by sharing patient stories.
On World Physiotherapy Day in 2014 we supported the APA’s I ♥ my Physio campaign to recognise the role of the Pulmonary Rehabilitation physiotherapist.
Following on from this campaign we would also like to recognise all the other valued health professionals Lung Foundation Australia work closely with, who deliver Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs.
In 2015 we will be starting with recognising the contributions of the Accredited Exercise Physiologist in the lead up to, and during Exercise Right Week (25th – 29th of May 2015).
