Presented live August 12th, 2020 2 pm – 3 pm Eastern
The goal for this project was to engage staff in the importance of mobilizing their patients. We needed to come up with something easy on they eyes, one page, and easy to understand for all clinical and non-clinical staff to understand. We gathered EBP articles on ambulation and mobility and came up with an infographic to post on all units. We also developed an audit tool for our Work Place Safety Champions to use on their rounds. The outcome was for staff to understand the importance of ambulation and mobility through a simple infographic.
Objectives – After this session, participants will be able to:
- Staff understand the importance of ambulation and mobility
- Staff use the infographic to educate patients and or family members on the importance of ambulation and mobility
- WPS Champions utilize the audit tool to evaluate the knowledge base of their peers.
