Early Mobilization in Cardiovascular Units
Sponsor:

Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation of Greater Montreal

Information provided by (Responsible Party):

Sara Ahmed

Brief Summary:

Insufficient mobility contributes to functional decline in hospitalized cardiac patients. Early mobilization programs were shown to improve functional status, increase the likelihood of home discharges, and reduce the length of stay \[1\]. Therefore, there is a need to adapt and implement early mobilization programs in Quebec hospitals. The overall goal of this study is to adapt and implement an early mobilization program in the Cardiovascular units of the Jewish General Hospital (JGH).

Detailed Description:

Background: Insufficient mobility contributes to functional decline in cardiovascular units. Early mobilization programs were shown to improve functional status, increase the likelihood of home discharges, and reduce the length of stay \[1\]. One example is the Level of Function (LOF) Mobility Scale implemented in the Cardiovascular units at the Jewish General Hospital, an academic tertiary care centre in Montreal, Quebec \[2\]. Despite evidence supporting the benefits of early mobilization programs, hospitalized individuals in cardiovascular units spend most of the day in bed \[1-6\]. Therefore, there is a need to adapt and implement early mobilization programs in Quebec hospitals. This project is research nested in a quality improvement initiative for the Jewish General Hospital Cardiovascular units. Objectives: 1) Adapt an early mobilization program in a hospital setting; 2) Develop strategies to overcome individual and organizational barriers to implementing an early mobilization program; 3) Assess the reach, acceptability, and fidelity of implementing an early mobilization program; and 4) Assess the program's impact on patients and the organization. Methods: A 3-phase study using an iterative participative approach. Phase 1: a qualitative design to adapt an early mobilization program. Phase 2: mixed methods repeated measures design to assess barriers and facilitators to implementing the program and develop implementation strategies. Phase 3: An interrupted time series design to assess the implementation and the impact of the program. Expected contribution: Early mobilization programs in the Cardiovascular units can improve the quality of care provided to these patients and promote further clinician-researcher partnerships, contributing to improved uptake of best practices in this clinical context.
