Objective Access to pulmonary rehabilitation (PR), an effective management strategy for people with chronic respiratory disease, is often limited particularly in rural and remote regions. Difficulties with establishment and maintenance of PR have been reported. Reasons may include a lack of adequately trained staff. There have been no published reports evaluating the impact of training programs on PR provision. The aim of this project was to evaluate the impact of an interactive training and support program for healthcare professionals (the Breathe Easy, Walk Easy (BEWE) program) on the delivery of PR in rural and remote regions. Methods The study was a quasi-experimental before-after design. Data were collected regarding the provision of PR services before and after delivery of the BEWE program and patient outcomes before and after PR. Results The BEWE program was delivered in one rural and one remote region. Neither region had active PR before the BEWE program delivery. At 12-month follow-up, three locally-run PR programs had been established. Audit and patient outcomes indicated that the PR programs established broadly met Australian practice recommendations and were being delivered effectively. In both regions PR was established with strong healthcare organisational support but without significant external funding, relying instead on the diversion of internal funding and/or in-kind support. Conclusions The BEWE program enabled the successful establishment of PR and improved patient outcomes in rural and remote regions. However, given the funding models used, the sustainability of these programs in the long term is unknown. Further research into the factors contributing to the ability of rural and remote sites to provide ongoing delivery of PR is required. What is known about the topic? PR including exercise training, education, and psychosocial support, is an effective and well evidenced management strategy for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that improves exercise capacity and quality of life, and reduces hospital admissions and length of stay. Despite the fact that participation in PR is seen as an essential component in the management of COPD, access remains limited, particularly in rural and remote regions. Difficulties with establishing and maintaining PR have been attributed to lack of physical and financial resources and adequately trained and skilled staff. There have been no published reports evaluating the impact of training programs for healthcare professionals in the provision of PR. What does this paper add? This paper is the first to demonstrate that the delivery of a well supported, interactive healthcare professional training program may facilitate the establishment of PR in rural and remote regions. Following delivery of the BEWE program, PR which broadly met the Australian recommendations for practice in terms of program content and structure, was established. Factors influencing the establishment of PR were related to the characteristics of the healthcare setting, such as remoteness, and to issues around staff retention. The settings where PR was not established were in less well-staffed, community-based, more remote settings. People with COPD who participated in these programs showed significant improvements in exercise capacity and quality of life. What are the implications for practitioners? One of the factors limiting the delivery of PR may be a lack of appropriately trained and skilled staff. Healthcare professionals' participation in locally provided education and training programs targeted at developing skills for providing PR may enable effective PR programs to be established and maintained in rural and remote regions. © AHHA 2014.

Background and Objective: There is a paucity of information related to teaching palliative care to entry-level physical therapy students. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of an undergraduate course in palliative care on the preparedness of entry-level physical therapy students to practice within the palliative care setting. Methods: Participants were all entry-level undergraduate students enrolled in the third year of a 4-year undergraduate degree. All students enrolled in the course, "Physiotherapy Through Lifestages" took part in the learning modules relating to the care of patients undergoing palliative care. A survey instrument was used in the study, a modified version of an existing unpublished written questionnaire previously used to evaluate palliative care education in other allied health professions. Results and Conclusions: Participation in the course resulted in an increase in self-rated knowledge and confidence for working in the palliative care setting for entry-level physical therapy students and is considered to provide a useful ongoing resource for the presentation of this topic material. Although the impact of the delivery of this education module may be considered successful in this regard, it would appear that some of the underlying attitudes and emotional responses to this area of physiotherapy practice were less easily influenced. Further research is required to understand the influences on emotional preparedness of students to undertake this area of study and practice and to determine the optimal stage of study for delivery of this content. © Copyright 2014, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

Postoperative physiotherapy has been shown to reduce the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications after open abdominal surgery. This study aimed to determine if the addition of deep breathing exercises and secretion clearing techniques to a standardised physiotherapist-directed program of early mobilisation improved clinical outcomes in patients undergoing open abdominal surgery. Fifty-six patients undergoing open abdominal surgery, at high risk of developing postoperative pulmonary complications, were randomised before operation to an early mobilisation-only group or an early mobilisation-plus-deep breathing and coughing group. Mobility duration, frequency and intensity of breathing interventions were quantified for both groups. All outcomes were assessed by a blinded outcomes researcher using a standardised outcomes measurement tool developed specifically for this population. Outcomes included incidence of clinically significant postoperative pulmonary complications, fever, length of stay, and restoration of mobility. There were no significant differences between groups in mean age, anaesthetic time, perioperative morbidity, or postoperative mobility. Outcome data were available for 89% of enrolled subjects. Overall incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications was 16%. The incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications in the non-deep breathing and coughing group was 14%, and the incidence of postoperative pulmonary complications in the deep breathing and coughing group was 17%, (absolute risk reduction -3%, 95% C1 -22 to 19%). There was no significant difference between groups in the incidence of fever, physiotherapist time, or the number of treatments. This study suggests that, in this clinical setting, the addition of deep breathing and coughing exercises to a physiotherapist-directed program of early mobilisation does not significantly reduce the incidence of clinically significant postoperative pulmonary complications in high risk open abdominal surgery subjects.
