The Johns Hopkins Activity and Mobility Promotion (AMP) Program™ is an inter-professional program aiming to support hospitals and health care providers that want to change the culture of patient immobility.

AMP provides frontline caregivers and hospital leaders with the tools and support needed to design and implement structured quality improvement processes to successfully increase patient activity and mobility.

  
 
 
 

By focusing on mobility, we are able to improve patient outcomes, expedite recovery time and shorten length of stay. Introducing this initiative has led to greater patient engagement and improved experience. More importantly, we are able to bring patients back to independence.

- Michelle D’Alesandro, Director of Medical Nursing at Johns Hopkins Bayview

AMP: Activity & Mobility Promotion

The Johns Hopkins AMP Program™ is an inter-professional program aiming to support hospitals and health care providers that want to change the culture of patient immobility. AMP provides frontline caregivers and hospital leaders with the tools and support needed to design and implement structured quality improvement processes to successfully increase patient activity and mobility.

Patient Mobility Program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital

Activity and Mobility Promotion was integrated into the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality project that focused on redesigning the ICU to eliminate the most common causes of preventable harm. Nurse Cindy Dwyer and physical therapist Amy Toonstra share how Johns Hopkins patients benefit from setting mobility goals and communicating patient mobility progress.
