Advanced Skills Training Programme
for Heart Failure
Twenty physiotherapists received their certification from Minister of State, Alex White, T.D., in ‘Advanced Skills for Physiotherapists in treating Heart Failure’ on Friday 10th May 2013.This recent training initiative was funded by the HSE and the training programme delivered by the Irish Society for Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP).
This advanced skills course for physiotherapists is part of the National Heart Failure Clinical Programme, which is designed to improve quality of life for patients with heart failure. Every patient with heart failure is managed within a structured programme and there are targeted programmes to prevent heart failure. Targets for the programme are to reduce readmission rates by 1000 and to reduce bed days by 20,000 per year. One of the key components of the programme is to enable patients to self-care with education by nurse specialists, direct access to appropriate care, including physiotherapy, and optimisation of medicines.
