Advancing Mobility Across the Continuum of Care: The NWI Journey
July 13, 2016 2PM Eastern
Presented by: Ronda Fritz, RN, BSN, MA
Early and progressive mobility is a widely accepted strategy to control the immobility consequences of care. This presentation explores how one healthcare system revived patient mobility using a collaborative multidisciplinary team approach coupled with existing Safe Patient Handling and Mobility (SPHM) resources.

Description: This conference will provide participants with cutting edge research, best practices, and lessons learned in safe patient handling and patient fall and fall injury prevention. This conference includes diverse learning opportunities, including plenary sessions, concurrent sessions, workshops, “hands on” practice sessions, and a large exhibit hall with new and emerging technologies. Innovations will be presented addressing such topics as safety legislation, practice tips, technology solutions, effective training techniques, successful organizational strategies, and building a business case.
Audience: This conference is designed to meet the needs of direct health care providers, managers, administrators, risk managers, educators, industrial hygienists/safety professionals, and researchers of any discipline who are interested in advancing safety for patients and caregivers. To meet the needs of a diverse audience, focused tracks have been established for: Special Topics in SPHM; SPHM in Special Settings and Populations; Program Implementation and Sustainability; Falls, Pressure Ulcers and Mobility; Special Novice Track.
Objectives: Upon completion of this program, the participant should be able to: 1. Evaluate technological solutions for safe patient handling and falls management. 2. Differentiate ergonomic hazards across patient care settings. 3. Apply best practices for reducing patient handling risks to caregivers. 4. Incorporate best practice for the use of SPHM technologies into rehabilitation strategies to improve function and reduce patient adverse events associated with immobility. 5. Differentiate fall prevention from fall protection. 6. Examine the state of science related to patient falls. 7. Segment vulnerable populations at greatest risk for injury.

EXHIBITORS Do You Want to Increase your impact at the Regional Networking Events?
Our Regional Events are proving to be very successful. It seems that each event we hold teaches us more about the successes that are realized in pursuit of safe patient handling practices and the need for information and practical education that remains. We also have learned that the regional events are appreciated for their easy access and valuable contacts that can be made in addition to the fine quality of the presentations. And, for the same reasons, the exhibitors are happy to attend these events as well – making it a win-win situation for everyone.
