Progressive Mobility® Program

Understand Your Challenge

  • Class Discussion Slides

    This presentation is designed to be used by those facilitating a Progressive Mobility® Program training event. The slides will help you instruct your class on the topics. They provide detailed speaking notes, activities and discussion guides to interact.

    Corresponding Participant Materials are available which follow these slides in a format more suitable for students.

  • Continuing Education - Introduction to Progressive Mobility


    This course will discuss the cause and effect of immobility in a clinical environment, the science behind early mobility, as well as the studies that support the use of it. Additionally, discussion will include how to overcome barriers and how to implement a progressive mobility program in a clinical setting.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify the importance of early patient mobility.
    • Compare and contrast traditional standards of care for patient mobility and identify current practice patterns.
    • Delineate institutional costs associated with immobility.
    • Define the concept of early mobility.
    • Discuss what evidence supports the use of early mobility.
    • Describe how to implement the Early Mobility program.

  • Continuing Education - Complications of Immobility


    Immobility can impact every system in the body. Complications from immobility can lead to a rapid and steady decline of a patient's overall health if preventive measures are not taken. Although patients in any healthcare setting can be compromised by immobility, it is particularly true of patients within critical care settings. Therefore, this course will focus primarily on the impact of immobility on the ICU patient.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify why early patient mobility is so important.
    • Delineate the new standards of care for patient mobility.
    • Examine institutional costs associated with immobility.
