In a nutshell: This research looked into ways of more effective fast communication to all members of a multi-disciplinary team to see clearly at a glance the mobile status of a patient after physiotherapy treatment. Members looked at the viability and usefulness of having a permanent, documented and easy to use communication method at the patient’s bedside using a colour chart and key. This could be read by health professionals and family members even at a distance, ensuring patients receive the correct level of assistance for their current level of mobility.
