Managing the respiratory patient at home

A group of our physiotherapists  have benefited from a free training day to help them prepare for a busy winter.

13 members of staff attended a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) day facilitated by Sally Cozens from Nippy Ventilators. This training was provided as part of the support given by the Jane McCauley Education Fund to support the development of Physiotherapists in Wiltshire.

The day was a great success and covered a range of topics which included a review of respiratory anatomy and physiology, respiratory diagnostics and management in the community for neurological conditions and practical sessions around managing equipment and troubleshooting NIV in the community.
