Performance Measures: 2021 Update on New Value-Based Measures, Program Quality, and Program Certification

Date: November 15, 2021

Presented by: Quinn Pack, MD, MSc, FAACVPR, Wen-chih Wu, MD, MPH, Gerene Bauldoff, RN, PhD, MAACVPR, Mark Stout, MS, CCRP, FAACVPR, Anne Gavic-Ott, MPA, RCEP, MAACVPR

In 2017, the Quality of Care committee of the AACVPR introduced seven performance measures for both cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation to assure uniform and reliable measurements across programs. Between 2018 and 2020, 1407 cardiac and 608 pulmonary programs submitted performance measures data as part of the certification application. In this session, we will review current program performance; discuss its implication for national program quality; introduce four new value-based performance measures; and discuss potential thresholds for performance that may be used in future program certification applications.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Introduce the new value-based quality measures around program enrollment and adherence and discuss the development and rational for these measures.
  2. Review the existing performance measures, the submitted data from the 2018-20 certification cycles, and some potential data quality issues.
  3. Discuss how the existing and new performance will be used in future program certification, including discussing performance thresholds for future certification.
  4. Encourage programs to use performance measures to improve program quality and set goals for improvement. Discuss the potential role of the AACVPR registry in this endeavor.

Diaphragm Dysfunction: Diagnostic Approaches & Rehabilitative Strategies

Date: May 21, 2021 

Presented by: Bryan J. Taylor, PhD

The diaphragm is considered the most important of the respiratory muscles, and its proper function is essential for adequate ventilation and function of the lungs. Unilateral diaphragm paralysis is a known complication of cardiothoracic surgery and neuropathic disease states that affect the phrenic nerve. Diaphragm weakness is also a common consequence of many chronic pulmonary and cardiac diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chronic heart failure. Diaphragm dysfunction is often associated with worse lung function, excessive dyspnea at rest and during exertion, and sleep disturbances. In this webinar, we will detail the etiology and pathophysiology of diaphragm dysfunction and discuss diagnostic approaches and management strategies that may be of interest to cardiopulmonary rehabilitation professionals.   

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify different etiologies of diaphragm paralysis and/or dysfunction
  2. Compare different diagnostic techniques used to identify diaphragm paralysis and/or dysfunction
  3. Evaluate the potential role for inspiratory muscle training as a rehabilitative strategy in patients with diaphragm paralysis and/or dysfunction

When Can You Trust the Experts? Evaluating Nutrition Information

Date: August 12, 2020

Speaker: Karen Collins, MS, RDN, CDN, FAND and Joel W. Hughes, PhD,  FAACVPR

When can you trust the experts? Nutrition research varies in type, quality, and source. Dietary advice and nutrition education is a key feature of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation staff, including registered dietitians (RD’s), need to critically evaluate the claims made in the media, by the research literature, and by the experts. Understanding strengths and limitations of research (and media) claims, as well as identifying potential sources of bias, will sharpen the critical thinking skills of all cardiopulmonary rehabilitation staff. Join Karen Collins and Joel Hughes for an entertaining discussion of when to trust the experts..

Learning Objectives
  1. Describe common sources of potential bias related to nutrition research and how it is communicated.
  2. Explain how to critically evaluate sources of information about nutrition (e.g., publications, statements, media reports) considering the strengths, limitations, and relevance to the CR/PR patient population.
  3. Create nutrition-related messages and answer patient questions on nutrition with greater accuracy and balance, demonstrating for patients how to be critical consumers of nutrition news.
