AMP pre-conference course agenda
Michael Friedman, PT, MBA & Erik Hoyer, M.D., Introduce AMP—Hospital
The Johns Hopkins AMP Program™ firmly establishes the concept that a systematic quality improvement approach is beneficial in combating the harms of immobility in our hospitals. Activity and mobility programs can reduce length of stay, decrease readmissions and improve patient outcomes. Such programs are an excellent method to drive value by "bending the cost curve” by improving patient outcomes at a lower cost to the hospital.
AMP Hospital Program Directors:
Watch AMP in Action
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 and to better meet the needs of patients, families and clinicians.
Nurse Cindy Dwyer and physical therapist Amy Toonstra share how Johns Hopkins patients benefit from setting mobility goals and communicating patient mobility progress.
