Collapse 2018 COPD + SDB = TROUBLE: Overlap Syndrome

As respiratory therapists, we likely have an excellent professional understanding of the “many shades of COPD” from our patient care experiences. However, we may not have considered the concomitant impact sleep disorders bring to our COPD patient.  Sleep Disordered Breathing is one of the most underdiagnosed and neglected disorders directly affecting both the quality and quantity of life for our COPD patients.  The goal of this presentation is to advance the understanding and professional toolkit of the practicing therapist to assess the potential presence of Overlap Syndrome.

    Collapse 2018 Pursuing an Expanded Scope of Practice: Leveraging Your License to Support Your Patients

    Patient care continues to evolve at a brisk pace with sicker patients being cared for with fewer resources. Expanding staffing is complicated by limited financial resources and utilization of other healthcare providers is hampered by their lack of specific education and training or expertise related to the practice of respiratory care. The solution to this problem resides with our ability to practice at the top of our license, so how do we expand our practice to meet our patient’s needs?

    Collapse Malpractice Risks:  The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    What you don’t know can hurt you.  As an individual caregiver, any time you discharge your professional obligations to treat a patient, you put yourself at risk of being blamed for failures in outcome.  Importantly, you do not have to have actually committed malpractice to be sued for malpractice.  And if you don’t have malpractice insurance, your personal assets may very well be subject to attachment and sale to satisfy any judgment that might be rendered against you.  This presentation focuses on the “man behind the curtain” in malpractice litigation, and what you need to know in evaluating your risks, and whether the benefit of malpractice insurance is offset by the cost.
