On July 5, the St. Petersburg Public Health Committee, in partnership with pediatric clinics, outlined a general action plan to organize outpatient kinesitherapy classes. The clinics held the roundtable “Kinesitherapy: A Physical Therapy Method for Children with Cystic Fibrosis” was held as part their monthly meeting.
The goal of the roundtable was to discuss the next steps to take with specific implementation dates for organizing special classes for cystic fibrosis children in the municipal clinics.
The result was that by July 19 the municipal clinics must send out preliminary applications for classes with one physical therapy doctor and from one to three instructors, depending on the number of children with cystic fibrosis to be seen. The overall demand for classes will be clear from the information received. A schedule of training will be developed jointly with a department at the I. P. Pavlov First St. Petersburg State Medical University.
