Who’s Missing From Pulmonary Rehabilitation

 

Transcript Link: Click Here

In this talk, I discuss concepts related to who is missing from participating in pulmonary rehabilitation. I mention a study we did in Canada to characterize the pulmonary rehabilitation programs which were running in 2015. The link to that paper is here.

I also mention a systematic review on several pulmonary rehabilitation survey studies, the link to that paper is here.

The Cochrane review I spoke of can be found here, and the associated editorial is found here.

The link to Dr. Jenny Alison’s and Mr. David Meharg’s Breathe Easy podcast episode on the American Thoracic Society Pulmonary Rehabilitation Assembly’s website can be found here.

I also talk a bit about health inequality in pulmonary rehabilitation in a different American Thoracic Society Breathe Easy podcast, which can be found here.

If you want to read a bit more about intersectionality and health care, I found this paper published in the Lancet to be very helpful in explaining this complicated concept.

I welcome your feedback about the show or ideas for future episodes. You can contact me via the CONTACT page on the LungFIT website.
