Deconditioning: Sit Up, Get Dressed and Keep Moving
Our ‘Sit Up, Get Dressed and Keep Moving’ campaign aims to help healthcare professionals recognise the long term effects of deconditioning, implement simple measures to prevent it, and educate patients and carers about the importance of remaining active during hospital admission and following discharge.
