Chronic respiratory diseases (CRDs) have grown in prevalence and are major causes of health burden and death worldwide. In general, the total cost of respiratory disease in the 28 countries of the EU alone amounts to more than €380 billion annually. As the disease progresses, complications may become more frequent and complex. Current evidence suggests that physical activity and long-term rehabilitation should be recommended to patients with chronic respiratory conditions since physical activity improves health outcomes and does not substantially increase the risk of harm.
The project aims to the development of rehabilitation programs and plans, improvement of student training, post-graduate training, improvement of patient education, education of patient’s families and patients’ organizations, and improvement of patients’ quality of life.
The project also aims at upskilling the competences of:
– University physiotherapy/ physical activity /sports /nursing students that need to acquire the professional competencies required by today’s patients with chronic respiratory conditions;
-Physiotherapy/ physical activity /sports /nursing professionals in practice willing to specialize in a particular field.
The project aims to the development of rehabilitation programs and plans, improvement of student training, post-graduate.
