244 - Implementing a Mobility Program on a Medical-Surgical Unit

‐ Sep 28, 2013 4:00pm

Although the adverse effects associated with immobility and the benefits of ambulation/mobility have been reported, patients still spend a large amount of their hospitalization in bed. This session describes an evidence-based translation project in which an interdisciplinary team developed guidelines and interventions for a mobility program and how patient outcomes were affected on a medical-surgical unit.
