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

Synopsis

In recent years, there has been a shift in care delivery towards coordinated care across the care continuum. Being involved  across all levels of patient care acuities, physiotherapists are inevitably positioned at this frontier of change. However, given the complex needs of these patients, the management of patients with cardiovascular conditions across a broad care spectrum can be challenging.


Therefore, a strong comprehension of the pathophysiology for cardiac conditions is imperative in creating the foundation for clinical reasoning and exercise prescription in various clinical settings. It is also indisputably critical to adhere to evidence-based exercise training to achieve optimal patient outcomes such as improved cardiovascular fitness and quality of life. With every treatment implemented, evaluation of its effectiveness should be measured and monitored with well-validated outcome measures.

This two half-days workshop aims to equip physiotherapists and other healthcare workers with evidence-based recommendations on rehabilitation of cardiac patients across the spectrum of care, from critical care to the community. Participants will be taught how to utilise clinical reasoning skills to determine readiness for active rehabilitation in the critical care setting. The application of theory and practice of the various phases of cardiac rehabilitation will be imparted as patients transit from intensive care to acute inpatient setting and eventually to community-based care. With a holistic approach to cardiac care in mind, participants will also be equipped with the knowledge on exercise training principles, effective delivery of patient education and secondary prevention strategies.
