Check out the bulletin board (see below) that’s now adorning a unit at the University of Maryland Medical Center! Some of our champions helped create the board to remind staff about the early mobility scale and why function focused care (FFC) is so important, along with pictures of staff engaging in FFC interventions.
A bulletin board doesn’t do much good if nobody sees it! Have a contest where staff are invited to post more pictures or short written descriptions on index cards of something they did to promote function focused care with a patient. You could even staple a large envelope to the board and ask staff to submit names of co-workers they saw using FFC with a patient, with a quick description of what they were doing. Then draw names for prizes after a few weeks! Have fun and send us pictures of your FFC bulletin board!
Have a great week!
