  • Time: 7:30am - 8:30am
  • Track: Clinical Practice
  • CME/CE: 1.0

Moderator: Jennifer D. Muniak, MD
This program will make the case for safe mobility to be a priority for older adult patients across healthcare settings and will empower participants to implement mobility programs in their home institutions.  Learning Objectives: (1) analyze the evidence for detrimental effects of low hospital mobility for older adults and the evidence for positive impact with a coordinated mobility program; (2) evaluate the unique challenges to mobility in different settings (ED, hospital, post-acute rehab, community); (3) describe common barriers to implementation of a mobility program and develop strategies in overcoming them; and (4) develop the knowledge and skills to adopt best practices from high performing mobility programs.
