Take A Deep Breath’s first meeting was held on Saturday 23 November at Kingsgrove RSL with nurses, Clare Brown and Andrea Scholes facilitating the group.
A physiotherapist from RPA, Associate Professor Lissa Spencer, presented to the Take a Deep Breath group on the importance of exercise pre and post-surgery. Her pulmonary rehab classes at RPAH had been well attended by many of the attendees at the meeting.
Our support groups focus on the power of bringing people with heart and lung disease together, to share their experiences and by so doing, to support each other pre and post-surgery.
