1008: Leadership in Health Care (Nurses)

The role of RTs and Nurses is evolving and growing. Historically their place to shine has been in hospital and notably in critical care. Although this is still absolutely true, and remains relevant, a broadening scope within these professions is emerging. Standing on the shoulders of home care and with the Extra Mural Program (the hospital without walls that provides health care in the home), we are seeing greater expansion of their role in the community. RTs and Nurses are in asthma and COPD clinics, community-based pulmonary rehab, and community health centers.

The health care system is broken, and it has been broken for a long time. There is an emerging trend for multidisciplinary teams to deliver primary health care (PHC). This novel approach PHC is proving to be advantageous. Respiratory Therapists (RTs) and Nurses are working collaboratively within multidisciplinary teams, infusing the health care system with focusing on disease prevention and health promotion versus the dated practice of waiting until the client is at their worst health to intervene. People deserve to live their best life with their illness, RTs and Nurses can contribute to making that possible.

1007: COVID-19 (NURSES)

 

What is SARS-COV-2, Covid-19?

The first case of COVID-19 was reported Dec. 1, 2019, and the cause was a then-new coronavirus later named SARS-CoV-2. SARS-CoV-2 is believed to have originated in an animal and changed (mutated) causing illness in humans. In the past, other infectious disease outbreaks have been traced to viruses originating in birds, pigs, bats and other animals that mutated to become dangerous to humans.

The emergence and spread of infectious diseases with pandemic potential have occurred regularly throughout history. Major pandemics and epidemics such as plague, cholera, flu, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) have already afflicted the world’s population. Many infectious diseases leading to pandemics are caused by zoonotic pathogens that were transmitted to humans due to increased contacts with animals through breeding, hunting and global trade activities. In the past, implementation of public health measures such as isolation, quarantine and border control helped to contain the spread of infectious diseases and maintain the structure of the society
