The evidence is in - we know moving is good for you, yet every minute, every day people lie in hospital beds deconditioning – this can have life changing impact.
The MOVEMENT movement creates a forum for nurses, therapists, doctors and health support staff to connect and talk about encouraging mobility and preventing harm. Individuals and organisations are invited to join free of charge – let’s #EndPJparalysis together.
Why #EndPJparalysis is Important...
#EndPJparalysis has become a global movement embraced by nurses, therapists and medical colleagues. Its aim: to value patients’ time and help more people to live the richest, fullest lives possible by reducing immobility, muscle deconditioning, and dependency at the same time as protecting cognitive function, social interaction and dignity.
Many of the people we care for are in their last 1000 days and they are the very people who do not have time to waste. Yet they are the people who are most likely to get stuck in our hospital systems due to their complex health and social needs.
There is plenty of evidence that immobility in hospital leads to deconditioning, loss of functional ability and cognitive impairment, all of which have the potential to increase a patient’s length of stay, using up their valuable time. One of the major impacts of the #EndPJparalysis campaign has been the focus on both the individual and the organisational impact of ‘staying in bed’.
Patients’ time is the most valuable currency in healthcare. Let’s make every minute count
