Patient assessments are a vital component to any successful cardiopulmonary rehab program. Assessments help to determine a patient’s physical, emotional, cognitive, and social health. They also provide crucial information to prepare and develop proper and individualized treatment plans. Assessments are typically performed at the start and throughout the entire program duration.
Validated questionnaires are quick and simple assessments commonly used in cardiopulmonary rehab. These specific tools analyze different components of overall health and are useful in determining progression. Additionally, there are specific questionnaires that AACVPR requires to be utilized for program certification. With so many options to choose from, LSI has created a new resource document to help you determine which assessment tools are the right fit for your patients and program.
