TACVPR Affiliate Pre-Meeting Workshop

The Texas Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation is hosting it's 32nd Annual State Conference on April 19 and 20 in Dallas, Texas. We invite you to join us before the official start of on-site programming and participate in the "One Million Hearts, Two Million Lungs: Taking Ownership of Your Rehab Program Quality" pre-meeting workshop. This hands-on workshop — taking place on April 19 from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. CT — serves as a reprise of session P102 from the AACVPR 38th Annual Meeting.

Throughout the workshop, experts will provide valuable information on how to take ownership of your program, why you need to focus on enrollment and adherence, what data you need to look at and how to interpret it in useful and effective ways. While there is not currently a Change Package available for pulmonary rehabilitation, you will learn how to apply the Cardiac Rehab Change Package to pulmonary rehab programs. Additionally, you will have an opportunity to put together your own pitch alongside a small group and receive feedback directly from the experts.


You can secure a spot to this highly-anticipated workshop by adding it on to your registration for the 2024 TACVPR Annual Conference or purchasing it as a stand-alone session.
