Patients and understanding is first and foremost I understand this isn’t a condition that is easily resolved by strength training.

London North West Healthcare NHS Trust

Based on the current situation now with COVID-19, how do you think the landscape for physiotherapist job scope has changed?

1 Answers

I said that for inpatients, the main focus of Physiotherapist is triaging patients into different severity groups to help the members of the MDT better decide who to see first. Furthermore, to ensure that the patients don't deteriorate beyond where they're already at. So to maintain muscle mass and strength through active assisted movements or isometric contractions if they're able to, if not passive assisted movements. Positioning with pillows to help ensure patient is comfortable as well. Breathing techniques like ACBT or Manual techniques like percussion can be done to help clear secretions and maintain oxygen levels. MSK Physios additionally can provide education or treatment sessions online via zoom or any other platform. They can use these platforms to "see" patients and still provide treatment to a certain extent. Group classes can be held via these platforms as well to help ensure that rehab classes are still going on and they also help to form a sense of community given that everyone has to be at home. Additionally, can provide education on how to stay safe during COVID-19 and what to do should symptoms be present and how to go about taking care of yourself to not get the virus. Less
