Executing Evidence-Based Progressive Mobility in the ICU
Learning ObjectivesAt the completion of this program, you will be able to:
- Outline the neuromuscular and neurocognitive complications ICU survivors often face.
- Describe the evidence supporting early physical and occupational therapy in the ICU.
- Discuss the benefits and common concerns when implementing an interdisciplinary progressive mobility programs in various settings.

While advancements in medical management of patients experiencing respiratory failure have improved their survival rate, neuromuscular and neurocognitive impairments can result in long-term deficits to their functional performance. Increasingly, the critical care community is emphasizing early, aggressive physical and occupational therapy – including progressive mobility – to improve these patients’ outcomes. However, development and implementation of an early progressive mobility program can be challenging for the interdisciplinary team. This webinar will discuss the long-term outcomes of critical illness survivors, evidence surrounding the importance of early progressive mobility in the ICU and common obstacles faced when creating or improving these programs.
