Title : Phyician assistant training program for management of cardiovascular and thoracic patients

Abstract:

A physician assistant acts as a bridge between the nursing professionals, doctors and the other members
of the health-care team, improving the quality of patient care by providing comprehensive care in
coordination with other health-care team members. A physician assistant specialized in dealing with
cardiovascular and thoracic patients provides care ranging from preventive services to coordinating
with the health-care team in treatment and rehabilitation of cardiovascular and thoracic patients.
The physician assistant training program primarily focuses on the role of a physician assistant in the
comprehensive management of cardiovascular and thoracic patients. In the physician assistant training
program for management of cardiovascular and thoracic patients, Cardiomersion provides theoretical and
practical training including 5 levels of basic and advanced training. Qualified physiotherapists, dieticians,
pharmacists, BSc. Nursing and GNM graduates are welcomed to participate in the basic course and MBBS,
BAMS graduates are eligible for the advanced training program with duration of 6 months that can be
extended up to 1 to 3 years. The basic training involves cardiac risk evaluation, cardiac and general health
evaluation, primordial and primary prevention, and holistic management of cardiovascular and thoracic
patients. It also includes early diagnosis and basic management of cardiovascular cardio-vascular disease,
pre-operative evaluation, surgical interventions, post-operative management, follow-up, rehabilitation
and secondary prevention, documentation and medico-legal aspects and BLS and ACLS certification. The
advanced training, level 4 and level 5 are for advanced clinical and surgical trainings with promotion of
academics and research in the field. With proper guidance and training, physician assistants improve the
efficiency of patient care and satisfaction.
