ABOUT THE PODCAST

Welcome to the LungFIT Podcast!

 

The LungFIT Pulmonary Rehabilitation podcast focuses on all things related to pulmonary rehabilitation (PR). PR is a multidisciplinary, evidence-based intervention for people with chronic lung disease. People who participate in PR report improved quality of life, reduced symptoms, and have better exercise tolerance. Many years of excellent research have provided PR with a solid evidence base, but often this evidence is not translated into clinical practice.

There are some resources available to people who work in PR, such as courses and conferences, but many of these are expensive or not available to everyone.

This  LungFIT Pulmonary Rehabilitation podcast is an easily accessible format for knowledge dissemination, and provides helpful information and tips for healthcare providers working in PR. It may also be informative for patients and their families.

The LungFIT Pulmonary Rehabilitation podcast will include topics such as:

  • upcoming research
  • clinical updates on assessment, tests, and tools
  • journal clubs
  • interviews with PR experts
  • tips on how to improve your program

We will also focus on professional development, with episodes dedicated to planning your career development, understanding how to read journal articles, and creating your community of practice.
