Learning outcomes descriptions 2.3.a

Competence description VQTS:
2.3.a   To be able to assist in mobility measures including patient/client activation according to patient’s/client’s treatment plan and individual condition.    

The professional caregiver is able to carry out mobility measures including patient/client activation according to the treatment plan and individual condition and resources. This is done autonomously and self-responsibly but according to instruction. 





































The professional caregiver is able to:

  • involve the patient/client and relevant others in mobility measures,
  • accept the need for movement and mobility (e.g. restless patient/client),
  • assist in changing the patient’s/client’s position (e.g. in wheelchair, in bed)
  • assist in the helping the patient/client standing up (e.g. from bed),
  • assist in the transfer of the patient/client (e.g. to and out of bed, to and out of wheelchair),
  • assist in the performance of passive and active mobilisation,
  • recognise and support patient´s/client´s resources regarding mobility,
  • assist in the using of different equipment supporting the positioning, mobility and transfer of patient/client (e.g. standing up aids, positioning aids),
  • assist in the appliance of prophylactic measures to prevent decubitus consequences of immobility (e.g. decubitus, thrombosis, pneumonia, contractures),
  • change the patient’s/client’s position while taking care on one’s own safety and intactness (e.g. Bobath-oriented, kinesthetics),
  • prevent risks related to patient’s/client’s environment and mobilisation (e.g. falling, strangulation) (see also CA.A.3).

The professional caregiver is able to:

  • explain legal regulations and consequences regarding movement and mobilisation (see also CA.B.3),
  • describe the importance of mobility and movement,
  • explain techniques to involve patient’s/client’s resources regarding the mobility,
  • describe different bed positions and their meaning,
  • describe the safe transfer of patient’s/client’s (e.g. from bed to wheelchair by means of bed lifters, manually from the wheelchair to the toilet),
  • explain differences regarding active and passive mobilisation,
  • name risks of immobility (e.g. thrombosis, decubitus, contracture),
  • describe prophylactic measures regarding potential risks resulting from immobility (e.g. thrombosis, decubitus, contracture, pneumonia),
  • list different equipment for mobility and transfer of patient/client and to describe its functionality (e.g. walking frame, wheel chair),
  • describe techniques to provide own safety (e.g. kinesthetics) (see also CA.A.3),
  • describe the risks of immobility and patient’s/client’s mobilisation regarding the patient’s/client’s environment (e.g. amount of storage aids, danger of pull on infusion lines and strangulation),
  • name reasons for restrictive measures (e.g. self-endangerment, danger to others).
