Webcast on Early Progressive Mobility in the ICU

Register today for Early Progressive Mobility in the ICU – AACN Clinical Scene Investigator Academy Project, the latest webcast from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM’s) ICU Liberation series. It will explore the implementation of an early progressive mobility protocol by Duke Raleigh Hospital’s medical-surgical intensive care unit (ICU), under the guidance of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN) Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) Academy.

The goal of this protocol was to decrease ICU lengths of stay and ventilator days, while increasing mobility and positive patient outcomes through reduced incidence of hospital-acquired infections and complications.

Implementation of the protocol has resulted in a large number of successful outcomes, a strengthened ICU team and a collaborative interprofessional culture in the unit. Presenters will discuss the team’s approach to implementation, project planning and protocol structure. They will also highlight challenges, qualitative and quantitative outcomes, and meaningful patient stories.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify different goals and strategies for successful implementation of an early progressive mobility protocol for critically ill patients, including tests of change, staff education, interprofessional collaboration, and addressing perceived barriers
  • Discuss initial and sustained outcomes and measurements resulting from the project
  • Describe how meaningful recognition and nurse leadership impact the success or failure of a project of this scale
