Hospital Activity and Mobility Promotion (AMP) Track
This track focuses on clinical implementation at the bedside, detailing resources and tools necessary to sustain a culture of mobility across your hospital.
The conference features presentations by members of the inter-professional team who have successfully integrated mobility as an essential component of hospital operations, quality improvement and safety efforts.
Johns Hopkins Mobility Trainer Certificate Track
Promoting mobility in hospitalized patients is integral to reducing the harms associated with immobility. It is important to ensure that nurses and other front-line staff receive the required training on engaging and mobilizing patients safely by incorporating the functional capacity scores to achieve daily mobility goals.
The Mobility Trainer certificate aims to provide the necessary tools and resources to train front-line staff to safely and effectively mobilize patients. The program will include hands-on training and didactic instruction that will teach mobility champions to:
- Understand and be able to communicate to others the importance of activity and mobility for hospitalized patients.
- Understand and teach the use of functional assessment tools to the bedside staff.
- Mobilize patients safely and use safe handling equipment as appropriate, and coach other staff.
- Use appropriate techniques and equipment to engage patients in mobility activities and know how to address patient refusal.
- Correctly score and interpret scores from the AM-PAC, JH-HLM, and the Johns Hopkins Daily Mobility Goal Calculator.
- Understand the terms used when mobilizing patients, such as level of physical assistance, precautions, weight bearing restrictions, etc.
- Use proper body mechanics and guarding techniques while mobilizing patients.
Participants will receive a certificate of achievement upon successful demonstration and the ability to train others to learned skills.
