Early Mobility Assessment for Critically Ill Patients

As management of critically ill patients improves, more people are surviving critical illness episodes. However, prolonged stays in intensive care units have various negative effects including increased morbidity and mortality, decreased function and long term weakness. Early mobility programmes can help to address these complications, but patients need to be carefully assessed and monitored to ensure the safety of these programmes. This course introduces early mobility programmes and highlights key assessment points that must be undertaken prior to a mobility programme commencing.
