Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Palliation of symptoms associated with pulmonary conditions; promotion of patient participation in symptom self-management

Palliation of symptoms associated with a number of pulmonary conditions; promotion of patient participation in symptom self-management across the spectrum of illness, from ICU admission to rehabilitation to home; requires a multi-disciplinary perspective and team.

 

There are a plethora of distressing symptoms (anxiety, shortness of breath, cough, fatigue, weakness) associated with a number of chronic pulmonary conditions, as well as in patients receiving mechanical ventilatory support in the ICU. These symptoms significantly impact admission to expensive acute care/critical care units.
