KTHR Implements the First Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program in a Rural Area and receives honorable mention for the SAHO Green Ribbon Award

By Lia Boxall RN(NP) and Linda Barlow RN(NP)

Primary Health Care in the Kelsey Trail Health Region (KTHR) recognized the need for chronic care disease specific working groups to ensure best practice treatment and follow up starting in 2005 with the arthritis working group. In 2007, the respiratory working group formed. Working with the Lung Association of Saskatchewan, six nurse practitioners, two pharmacists and therapists completed both the COPD TREC and ASTHMA TREC four day programs. This became the baseline, evidence-based knowledge required to be part of the respiratory working group.  Using KTHR data,  the goal of the group was to increase accessibility to pulmonary rehabilitation for residents living with COPD.
