Workshop: Implementing an Inter-professional Culture of Mobility Across the Hospital

Spring 2019 | Baltimore, MD

The workshop provides resources and support to implement the Johns Hopkins Activity and Mobility Promotion (AMP) solution within your facility. The workshop features presentations by members of the inter-professional team, including physicians, rehabilitation psychologists, therapists, nurses and administrators, who have successfully integrated mobility as a component of hospital operations, quality improvement and safety efforts. There will also be numerous opportunities for you to consult with speakers on your specific work.

A major barrier to mobility is patient engagement. The first day of our workshop focuses on the components of achieving patient-centered care by changing communication across health care teams to better interact with patients and assisting patients in making healthy choices and increasing engagement in their own care.
