Conclusions: As RHP roles continue to evolve, consideration should be given to the ways in which RHPs can contribute to improving the quality of care for patients with advanced respiratory disease. Building collaborations with RHPs, palliative care, and other existing health programs can ensure high quality of care. Creating and taking advantage of learning opportunities to build skills and comfort in using a palliative approach will benefit respiratory patients. PMID: 31595226 [PubMed]

Abstract Introduction: Few investigations have related objective assessments of indoor air pollutants to respiratory health in farmers, in spite of the many rural environmental hazards to which they are exposed. Chemical air pollution has been particularly neglected. Objective: We investigated the relationships of indoor exposure to particulate matter (PM) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to respiratory health in farmers. Methods: Nineteen VOCs (5 families) and PM (from ultrafine to total suspended particles (TSP)) were objectively assessed in dwellings and workplaces in 109 French farmers du...
