The ACS Surgical Patient Education Department offers Your Lung Operation Home Skills Program to support patients with educational materials to learn and practice the skills needed for optimal postoperative recovery.
Your Lung Operation provides patients needing a lung resection with the knowledge and training to support full participation and optimal recovery. The 30-minute DVD includes an overview of the lungs and procedure options, preoperative prep, cancer staging, potential risks, discharge, and home care. All Joint Commission safety guidelines are incorporated, including: site marking, ID band checks, and pneumonia and DVT prevention strategies. This is an excellent teaching video for both patients and professional staff.
The ACS is now granting single hospital networks to broadcast the licensed DVD program. This standard license is good for one year and will include 35 Your Lung Operation Home Skills Programs. Each program includes: DVD, booklet, individual information sheets that include lung images for surgeon review and drawing; medication lists; exercise and pulmonary rehab activity guides; and quit smoking resources.
