Abstract

Objective This scoping review will identify and synthesise the available evidence for post-operative physiotherapy following upper GI surgery, in order to identify gaps in the literature, inform evidence-based practice and contribute towards guidelines and/or policy development. Introduction Physiotherapy management following thoracic, cardiac and upper gastrointestinal surgery has been identified as one of the five key priorities for review by the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Respiratory Care (ACPRC) editorial board. Previously, systematic reviews have been published with a focus on one type of physiotherapy treatment. The aim of this scoping review was to identify all types of post-operative physiotherapy following upper GI surgery research to provide a comprehensive review of available evidence.
