Learning outcomes descriptions 2.3.b

Competence description VQTS:
2.3.b   To be able to implement mobility measures including patient/client activation according to patient’s/client’s treatment plan and individual condition.    
Competence (EQF)SkillsKnowledge

The professional caregiver is autonomously and self responsibly able to perform mobility measures including patient’s/client’s activation according to the treatment plan and to the individual conditions in all care cases.







































The professional caregiver is able to:

  • perform changing the patient’s/client’s position (e.g. in bed, in wheelchair),
  • help the patient/client standing up (e.g. from bed),
  • perform the transfer of the patient/client (e.g. to and out of bed, to and out of wheelchair),
  • perform passive and active mobilisation,
  • implement specific methods of positioning and mobility measures of patient’s/client’s according to disease patterns,
  • recognise the patient’s/client’s needs regarding the aids for mobility and transfer,
  • develop a mobility and movement plan according to disease patterns and patient’s/client’s needs (see also CA.1.3),
  • bring the patient/client in a position that is necessary for interventions and examinations,
  • recognise and to manage risks situations and changes in the patient’s/client’s condition in the care act (e.g. recognise circulatory collapses),
  • estimate the sedation state of patient’s/client’s and determine whether adequate sedatives were administered (see also CA.3.2),
  • collaborate with other professionals regarding mobility and movement and activation of the patient/client,
  • document implemented mobility measures (see also CA.A.2).

The professional caregiver is able to:

  • name mental disorders and diseases that influence the mobility of the patient/client (e.g. delirium, psychosis, epileptic attack, dementia),
  • describe the influence of mental disorders and diseases that influence the mobility of the patient/client,
  • describe the Bobath-concept related to special diseases connected to mobility and immobility (e.g. stroke, restless patient/client),
  • describe physical diseases that lead to movement restrictions and their influence on mobility/transfer of the patient/client (e.g. spinal surgery, pulmonary oedema),
  • describe special positions for surgical interventions (e.g. spine surgery),
  • name and describe diseases of the motion apparatus that lead to restrictions in self-sufficiency (e.g. Morbus Bechterew, disc prolapse),
  • explain limitations on mobility measures according to circulatory instable patient’s/client’s (e.g. shock, vital threatening situation),
  • describe the physiology of pain and differentiate between individual pain experiences,
  • describe special positions for examinations (e.g. lumbar puncture, gastric reflection),
  • differentiate the patient´s/client´s needs regarding mobility according to disease pattern,
  • describe the influence of sedation regarding mobility,
  • name risks of too low/high depth of sedation regarding mobility (see also CA.3.1),
  • describe of the development of mobility and movement plans and its reasoning (see also CA.1.3),
  • list necessary steps to prepare patient’s/client’s for transportation (e.g. securing drains, use of straps).
