‘ADAPT members are invited to a demonstration of the respiratory module built for LMIC by Alex Hough, Fiona Lindsay and Simon Fraser. Due to COVID-19 and the need to support communities with respiratory rehabilitation skills, the module is being considered for immediate release to be made publicly available. Releasing this module without the normal, lengthy, process of research and ethics committees, we are asking qualified physios with some experience of LMIC to watch the demonstration and vote on whether they believe the module is ready for public use. You can watch this live and vote on Thursday 11th March, or you can watch the recording and vote up to 72hours afterwards. The link to join the demonstrtion will be sent out to all members. Fiona Lindsay says “Please, please join us, your thoughts and vote are vital to the success of respiratory support in LMIC.”
