Team Collaboration E-MAT

What is team collaboration?

Have you ever had the experience in a clinical setting of having difficulties or feeling frustrated due to slow progress in patientsʼ regaining mobility? At such times, it can be reassuring to have someone with whom you can consult.

Recently, “Mobilization” has been gaining recognition as a common term amongst healthcare providers and consensus is being reached with regard to mobilization. In actual mobilization assistance situations, comprehensive abilities capable of responding to patients’ backgrounds—which have become increasingly diversified as modern medicine has advanced on a daily basis—are required, and inter-professional team collaboration is regarded as essential.

What is E-MAT?

“E-MAT” stands for “Early Mobilization Assistance Team”. E-MATs provide early mobilization assistance at various healthcare facilities. Teams comprising members from multiple medical professions are assigned to ICU/wards or departments and act as a driving force promoting patients’ mobilization.
