Description: The mobility initiative crosses many of APTA's strategic initiatives. Culture of Mobility was highlighted in the Innovation Summit as well as in APTA conference programming in 2013. The physical therapist plays an integral role in this initiative, which focuses on patient mobility. The early mobilization model offers many positive outcomes, including decrease in the number of patient complications, improvement in the process of patient care, and overall decrease in hospital length of stay. This presentation will examine opportunities, strategies, and tactics to position, implement, and evaluate interdisciplinary mobility initiatives in the hospital setting.
