"Evaluating the value of the Respiratory Therapist: Where is the evidence?" Lecturer: Marin H. Kollef MD. Are respiratory therapists critical thinkers with the ability to work as physician extenders and add value to the American health care system or does science suggest we're nothing more than task doers? Do respiratory therapist-driven protocols improve care and reduce costs? Can respiratory therapists properly assess patients and make therapeutic recommendations that adhere to evidence-based guidelines and rival outcomes achieved by physicians? This lecture will explore the answer to these and other questions, and highlight the most recently published literature on the topic. Find out once and for all whether published science suggests that RTs possess the skill-set to work successfully in expanded roles, as physician extenders and really do offer value to the American health care system.
