Five Components of MOVIN
MOVIN is a multidimensional intervention comprised of five components – Psychomotor skills training, Resources, Communication, Ambulation Environment, and Unit Culture. When implemented with fidelity, these five components address the multifaceted barriers preventing nursing staff from ambulating older adults during their hospital stay.
Physical therapy and nursing-led didactic and hands-on training
Distance markers and unit maps to increase progression
Additional staff and ambulation equipment
Unit-level launch team, unit ambulation goals, and incentives
Electronic reporting and visible and verbal communication tools
MOVIN occurs in three phases over a 12-week period: Preparing for MOVIN, Implementing MOVIN, and Sustaining MOVIN. Through these phases, the five components of MOVIN are implemented at your site. Use of the MOVIN manual and supporting tool kit documents ensures successful application of MOVIN on adult acute care inpatient units.
