Your Lung Operation Home Skills Program
The Your Lung Operation Skills Program provides patients needing a lung resection with the knowledge and training to support full participation and optimal recovery. The program includes a 20-page booklet and a 30-minute DVD with an overview of the lungs and procedure options, preoperative preparation, cancer staging, potential risks of procedures, discharge information and home care instructions. Separate information sheets include lung images for the surgeon to review and use for drawing, medication lists, exercise and pulmonary rehab activity guides, and quit smoking resources. All Joint Commission safety guidelines are incorporated such as site marking, ID band checks, and pneumonia and DVT prevention strategies. The Your Lung Operation Skills Program was developed by a multidisciplinary program of the American College of Surgeons Division of Education and has been funded in part by a grant from Ethicon Endo-Surgery.
