Pressure ulcer challenges in a new era
Pressure ulcers (PU) continue to present substantial clinical challenges to health care professionals and place a huge economic burden on health care providers. They also have a huge impact on the quality of life of patients and their carers.
Mölnlycke® invites you to join its webinar series where key thought leaders offer insight into how they have addressed these challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Why do we celebrate SPUD?
We know that many pressure ulcers are preventable, so when they do occur they can have a profound impact on the overall wellbeing of patients and can be both painful and debilitating. Stop Pressure Ulcer Day has grown into an international movement dedicated to improving quality of life for patients at risk around the world.
In 2020, we join the movement by presenting several webinars, focused specifically on the evolving challenges of pressure ulcers in today’s clinical environment – and what we can do to help improve care for all vulnerable patients.
Managing the burden of device related pressure injuries in vulnerable patients
Patients, particularly vulnerable ones, are at a greater risk than ever of developing device-related pressure injuries. The current healthcare crisis has exacerbated risk, and made prevention strategies a top priority, even as healthcare providers’ attention is pulled elsewhere. Tuesday 30 March 11:00 AM BST Join the webinar
PI prevention in prone positioned patients: driving and implementing system-wide changes to improve outcomes
Public health emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, create the need for urgent evidence-based interventions to prevent negative patient outcomes such as pressure ulcers. Hear how global experts in PU prevention manage changes in clinical practice through system-wide adoption of best practice, to help protect prone positioned patients. Watch on-demand
PI prevention, trends and lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of patients are being admitted to ICU/CCU and cared for in a prone position for extended periods to aid mechanical ventilation. How can clinicians manage the increased risk of patients developing pressure ulcers as a result of prone positioning? Available now. Watch on-demand
Hard to heal Pressure Ulcers
In this webinar, Dr Paulo Alves will share his knowledge and experience within this area with emphasis on why debridement and exudate management is so important. Watch on-demand
Managing the burden of hospital acquired medical device related pressure ulcers
Due to the current global health care crisis, more patients are being admitted to hospital intensive care units where they can come in to contact with a vast number of different medical devices. Skin and tissue damage associated with these devices can take a long time to treat and may result in permanent scarring. Watch on-demand
How can you prevent pressure injuries in the OR, and why is prevention important?
Learn from experts’ real-life experience and evidence-based practice in pressure injury prevention. Join Diane Kimsey as she shares her process improvement plans for decreasing pressure injuries in acute and ambulatory OR settings. Watch on-demand
