The aim of this course is to improve physiotherapists' confidence and competence with using NIV as an adjunct to physiotherapy treatment such as airway clearance or exercise training.
Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is a commonly used therapy for respiratory failure and fatigue in a range of clinical conditions such as in COPD, cystic fibrosis or neuromuscular conditions. It may be applied on hospital wards, intensive care/high dependency units or in the home by appropriately trained staff from a number of disciplines (doctors, nurses, technicians or physiotherapists).
Course participants should already have some cardiorespiratory physiotherapy experience (ideally 2+ years) and work in an environment (such as intensive care) or with patient groups (such as chronic respiratory diseases like COPD or CF) where NIV has shown to be beneficial with physiotherapy.
