An Integrated Care Continuum: Following Cardiac Patients from ICU to Community

Synopsis

In recent years, there is a shift in care delivery from disparate entities towards coordinated care along the care continuum. Being involved in patient care through all levels of care intensities, physiotherapists are inevitably positioned at this frontier of change. The management of patients with cardiovascular conditions across a broad care spectrum can prove to be challenging. Essential to cardiac rehabilitation is a strong comprehension of pathophysiology of these conditions, knowledge and application of appropriate exercise prescription in different clinical settings, as well as utilisation of well-validated outcome measures.

This workshop aims to equip physiotherapists and other healthcare workers with knowledge of evidence-based consensus recommendations on rehabilitation of cardiac patients across the spectrum of care, from critical care to the community. Participants will be taught how to use their clinical reasoning skills to determine suitability for active rehabilitation in the critical care setting and how to identify safety parameters. The theory and practice of the various phases of cardiac rehabilitation will be discussed as patients transit from intensive care to acute inpatient setting and eventually to community-based care. Participants will also be equipped with the knowledge on exercise training principles as well as delivering patient education and secondary prevention strategies with a holistic approach.
