If patients stay in their pyjamas for longer than they need to, they have a higher risk of infection, loss of mobility, fitness and strength, and will ultimately stay in hospital longer. Having patients in their day clothes, rather than in pyjamas (PJs) or gowns, enhances dignity, autonomy and, in many instances, shortens their length of stay.
The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) is excited to once again partner with Paul Wright from Patient and Family Centred Care to deliver this free, educational webinar.
The End PJ Paralysis (#endPJparalysis) movement has been embraced by nurses, therapists and medical colleagues around the world. This webinar will highlight the benefits of patients getting up, getting dressed and getting moving.
- Learn about and understand the ‘End PJ Paralysis’ global movement
- Understand the importance of mobilization for patients/residents
- Explain the role LPN’s can play in this initiative
- Learn how to promote the End PJ Paralysis movement within your organization
This webinar is FREE! No registration fee to attend. This webinar is intended to be an education tool that will inspire you to delve into this topic with new interest.
