November 12-13, 2016
This hands-on course is offered by the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto and includes an interactive online component prior to the hands-on weekend workshop. This course will provide an evidence-based overview of pulmonary rehabilitation with a special focus on exercise that will be relevant for rehabilitation and exercise professionals. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about exercise limitation and general training principles. They will administer and interpret the results of various exercise and functional tests commonly used in pulmonary rehabilitation programs such as field tests (6 Minute Walk, Incremental Shuttle Walk and Endurance Walk Test), strength, balance and inspiratory muscle testing and training. Oxygen therapy in the pulmonary rehabilitation setting will also be presented. A case study approach to exercise prescription will accompany the hands-on components.
