Event Registration - Early Mobility in ICU - AACN CSI Academy Project
Tuesday, September 29, 2015
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Central Daylight Time
Held in collaboration with Project Dispatch, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), this webcast will discuss an early progressive mobility protocol that was implemented at Duke Raleigh Hospital's medical-surgical intensive care unit (ICU) under the guidance of the AACN Clinical Scene Investigator (CSI) Academy. The goal was to decrease ICU lengths of stay and ventilator days, while increasing mobility and positive patient outcomes through reduced incidence of hospital-acquired infections (HAI) and complications. Since implementation, they have experienced a large number of successful outcomes and a strengthened ICU team, and have created a collaborative interprofessional culture in their unit. In this session, Katherine Geyer, BSN, RN, CCRN, CNIV, and Kristin Merritt, MSN, MBA/HCM, RN, NE-BC, CCRN, will discuss the team's approach.
