The 4th Annual Altholz Mobility Conference

Hospital-wide physical activity promotion is proven to prevent deconditioning, maximize functional mobility, and prepare patient for discharge from the hospital. Sedentary patients are at risk of developing complications during and after hospitalization. For mobility to be effective, all healthcare providers need to participate in patient’s mobility early and often. Education on safe patient handling is essential to ensure safety of our staff and promote efficiency during the work day. This conference will bridge the interdisciplinary gap between best practice and clinical implementation of mobilizing patients to improve patient outcomes, shorten length of stay, and optimize quality of life for each hospitalized patient.
