It is important to stress this challenge is about measurement for improvement not judgement


How are we gathering data?

• An iPhone/Android app to collect data manually has been developed

• This app will be free during the 70 day Challenge

• Ward/unit staff will be invited to download the app (via validated work email addresses)


Each day staff will be asked to answer two questions:

1. How many patients are dressed in day clothes at midday?

2. Of these patients, how many have mobilised e.g. to the toilet/shower or walked around the bed?


A publically accessible dashboard (www.endpjparalysis.com) will also be created to show:


• the combined bed day total towards our 1 million patient day goal

• individual facilities results, with filters for net and percentage bed days

• comparisons between specialties (e.g. medical, surgical, etc), hospitals, care homes and by country

You can download the app here
