Prioritising physiotherapy services: the development and implementation of a post-operative screening tool
Few respiratory physiotherapists now undertake pre-operative patient assessments, and not all post-operative patients will need physiotherapy. The objective of this project was to devise a safe screening tool (SPPOST) that could be applied post-operatively, which would prioritise surgical patients most likely to benefit from physiotherapy contact. The SPPOST was applied to 404 post-operative patients, screening out nearly half with no measurable detriment, thereby facilitating the targeting of higher risk patients.

Abstract

Few respiratory physiotherapists now undertake pre-operative patient assessments, and not all post-operative patients will need physiotherapy. The objective of this project was to devise a safe screening tool (SPPOST) that could be applied post-operatively, which would prioritise surgical patients most likely to benefit from physiotherapy contact. The SPPOST was applied to 404 post-operative patients, screening out nearly half with no measurable detriment, thereby facilitating the targeting of higher risk patients.
