Johns Hopkins 3rd Annual Hospital Activity and Mobility Conference

April 22-24, 2020 | Baltimore, MD

Hospitalized patients generally spend much of their day in bed. Whether in the ICU or in other hospital units, immobility and its associated negative consequences increase length of stay and hospital-acquired harms and lead to worse patient outcomes. Combating the immobility harm in the hospital is no simple task. It requires collaboration and coordination between clinicians who have traditionally worked in "silos."  

Johns Hopkins Activity & Mobility Promotion (AMP) stands behind a systematic approach to combating hospital immobility. This conference will detail the approach, resources and tools necessary to sustain a culture of mobility across your hospital. The conference features presentations by members of the inter-professional team, including nurses, physicians, rehabilitation psychologists, therapists and administrators who have successfully integrated mobility as an essential component of hospital operations, quality improvement and safety efforts. There will also be numerous opportunities to consult with speakers on your specific line of work.

We encourage all hospital inter-professional teams to attend.
