“We should all support #EndPJparalysis” Jane Cumming, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England

“For many wearing pyjamas reinforces feeling unwell and can prevent a speedy recovery. One of the most valuable resources is a patients’ time and getting people up and dressed is a vital step in ensuring that they do not spend any longer than is clinically necessary in hospital. I urge all those caring for our older patients to help end PJ Paralysis and get involved in the 70-day challenge and show the impact they can make.” Prof Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England 5th March 2018

“A recent pilot gave patients back 91,728 days or 250 years’ worth of time across nine trusts in the East of England as result of getting patients up and dressed. The Chief Nursing Officer will build on its success – by rolling out a national 70-day challenge – with an ambition to have a million patient days captured in just 70 days… She is urging all those who care for older people, nationwide, to encourage them to get up and active especially if they are in hospital.” NHS England 5th March 2018

“#EndPJparalysis is a remarkable campaign that has swept across the country. It reminds us that for those over 80 years old, a week spent in bed can equate to 10 years muscle ageing, a loss of 1.5kg of muscle mass and a 20 per cent reduction in aerobic capacity. It can also lead to a five-fold increase in the risk of requiring institutional care and, in one study by Lim et al some 47 percent of delayed transfers of care related to deconditioning… I ask all nurse leaders to look at how therapeutic environments can e strengthened in all ward environments, with a specific emphasis on using #endPJparalysis to do this.” Prof Jane Cumming, Chief Nursing Officer, NHS England November 2017

This conference takes a case study focused approach to meeting the New National Ambition set by the Chief Nursing Officer to #EndPJParalysis, to deliver the national 70-day challenge – with an ambition to have a million patient days captured in just 70 days to getting patients up, dressed and moving. The conference will demonstrate how to improve practice through implementing learning from organisations that have successfully implemented #EndPJparalysis in practice, bringing the #last1000days and #Red2Green to life. Sessions will focus on changing culture and practice, data collection and monitoring, changing patient and carer expectations, preventing deconditioning, understanding the evidence and looking at the patient perspective.
