Respiratory Service

Yamba Community Health – Respiratory service

The Respiratory Liaison nurse (RN) provides assessment and education for clients with any chronic pulmonary condition. Clients are seen individually and can be offered a place in the Pulmonary Rehab program, which is by invitation. Focus is on educating clients about their condition and improving self- management skills, to prevent/minimise flare ups and hospitalisation. The Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program runs twice a week over an 8-week period, and usually four times a year, depending on waiting lists. The RN and physiotherapist work together to run this program on site.
