According to NANDA, the state of not having the physiological or psychological energy to complete the activities of daily living (ADLs) is called activity intolerance. Maximizing the patient's mobility ability and enhancing their self-care ability is a central goal for rehabilitation nurses. Rehabilitation patients experience many conditions that may result in activity intolerance. The rehabilitation nurse's role is essential to enhance the patient's participation in the therapy experience and to promote carryover to the unit and home environment.
