The Complications of Immobility

       May 14, 2014  2PM Eastern

Presented by:

Dee Kumpar, RN, BSN, MBA, CSPHP

This presentation will illuminate why mobility is essential early on in the ICU.  Early mobility in the ICU prevents deconditioning that impacts all of our body systems.  This can place the patient at risk for prolonged ventilation and fall risk once we do get them out of bed.

The Regional Networking Events held in Pewaukee, Wisconsin on May 9th and in Wilmington, DE on June 3rd were both 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.

Please watch our website headlines and this page for information regarding our next Event.  Perhaps it will be in your area.

Our “Networking with SPH Experts” event that was held on Monday, November 12, 2012 at the Oakland Hilton Airport was a great success!  Many thanks to our speakers, the exhibitors and those who attended.  We received some terrific comments on the day:

“You provided outstanding speakers, stimulating conversation and cutting edge information at a cost that was no prohibitive”

“One of the best, most informative meetings I’ve been to.  Congratulations to ASPHP for putting this together so well!”

“For such a young association, I am highly impressed with your speakers, vendors, venue, the whole seminar – A+++.  The best seminar I have ever attended in all my experience.  Thank you!”

Enjoy some pictures of the day….

Thank you Oakland!
