Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Patient immobility is recognized as a contributing factor to development of pressure injury and patient deconditioning. ICU patients that are advanced in age, obese, and high acuity challenge the current nursing environment of decreased staffing and resources. According to a recent randomized controlled trial, only 47% of the high risk-patients are turned every 2 hours. In this foundational session, the execution of nurse-mobility technician partnerships demonstrates improved and sustained outcomes for patients and staff.


  • Describe the interdisciplinary implementation of an early progressive mobility protocol that included a mobility technician.
  • Explain of improved patient outcomes with the nurse-mobility technician partnership.
  • Discuss the reduction of staff injury with dedicated mobility technician support.
