NYSPFP Progressive Mobility Webinar: Implementing and Achieving a Culture of Activity & Mobility

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
NYSPFP, in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, will host an October 3 webinar on preventing harm from immobility by implementing an inter-professional program to promote activity and mobility across the hospital.

This is the first event in the new NYSPFP Progressive Mobility Initiative, which aims to prevent a broad range of hospital-acquired conditions (HACs) and readmissions that are exacerbated by immobility and deconditioning.

Directors of the Johns Hopkins Hospital Activity and Mobility Promotion (AMP) Program will discuss evidenced-based practices, present research, and offer tools needed to design and implement structured quality improvement processes to successfully and safely increase patient activity and mobility in the hospital. The webinar will cover:
• The evidence and environment to support AMP in the hospital
• Assessment of the barriers to implementing an AMP program
• Roles of multidisciplinary clinicians in patient activity and mobility promotion
• AMP implementation strategies, workflows, and tools

Speakers

• Eric Hoyer, MD, Vice Chair for Quality, Safety, and Service, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Assistant Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
• Michael Friedman, PT, MBA, Director of Rehabilitation Therapy Services
