Sunday, March 8, 2020 through Saturday, March 14, 2020, is a time for observing Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week and for informing the community about the responsibilities of pulmonary rehabilitation in improving the quality of life for people with lung disease.
This is also a time to thank your team members for their assistance and share with them valuable educational resources to further their professional development if you work in the healthcare industry and when working in the pulmonary rehabilitation field. Follow #PRWeek20 for information regarding Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week and to send a shout-out to your team members and the respiratory therapist in your life!
Patients with chronic lung disease depend greatly on respiratory therapists to assist them through their medical conditions. These patients also need respiratory therapists to assist them after their acute episode has completed too, which is when pulmonary rehabilitation takes over. Pulmonary rehabilitation programs show patients how to live a fulfilling life despite chronic lung disease and how to keep these patients healthy.
Use this week to celebrate those rehabilitation programs and the devoted respiratory therapists who work hard at getting their patients to where they need to be.
