Bree Bishop is our Clinical Operations Manager here at AvantiCare and is an experienced Cardio-respiratory Physiotherapist. As a senior clinician Bree has experience in Acute care, Cardio-respiratory, Geriatrics, Aged Care and was working in hospitals on the front line during the H1N1 (Swine Flu) pandemic in 2009.

So, what is Cardio-respiratory physiotherapy?

Cardio-respiratory physiotherapy is the combination of exercise, education, and behavioural intervention to improve our lung function after contracting respiratory illness. Using these strategies can dramatically improve daily life and also enhance the quality of life for years to come. Coming into the cold and flu season, especially within the current environment, lung health should be a high priority.

Bree leads our clinical team and this places us in the best possible position to support you through the upcoming cold and flu season, as well as in the current landscape.

If we can assist you and your team or if you would like to hear more about how cardio-respiratory physiotherapy could help you, please do not hesitate to contact us today.

Another initiative and way we adapted our business during COVID-19 to ensure we continued to best support our industry was expanding our services to offer TeleHealth.

Our AvantiCare Speech Pathology team are now very experienced in Telehealth services and work with evidence-based practices to best support our clients.

Can Speech Pathologists achieve the same accuracy with a Telehealth consult as they do with a face-to-face assessment?

Yes, our Speech Pathology team can conduct Telehealth consults and achieve a 95% accurate assessment.

You can contact our friendly team today, if you’d like to learn more about our telehealth services.
