Many mission hospitals around the world do not have access to Rehab Professionals. Early patient mobility has been shown to improve patient’s outcomes. Visiting Medical Professionals, Doctors, Therapists, Nurses and other professionals can play an important role in teaching non rehab professional clinicians in mission hospitals when and how to mobilize even some of the sickest or most severely injured patients. This workshop will review some basic rehab patient mobility techniques.
