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.
Our latest webinar, team-hosted by experts in the field, Nick Santamaria, Paulo Alves, Amit Gefen and Sue Creehan, addresses how to manage the challenges of the new level of burden created by the current healthcare crisis and the importance of avoiding skin and tissue damage.
Taking place on March 30th, the webinar also discusses the risk to patients of developing pressure injuries from devices and the considerations for preventing skin damage as well as:
- What causes device-related pressure injuries
- Aetiology and incidence
- Considerations and recommendations for preventing tissue damage
- Impact on vulnerable patients
