Pressure ulcers – definition, assessment, prevention and treatment

On Demand
From Apr 25, 2024 to Jun 27, 2024
Up-coming Webinar

Pressure ulcers are a painful, debilitating condition that can, largely, be prevented. Seen as a measure of harm by NHS England/Improvement and reportable to the CQC in care home settings, understanding how best to protect those within your care from developing a pressure ulcer is an important aspect of care delivery.

Prevention of pressure ulcers is however not always easy and, in some cases, not possible. Understanding how they develop, how to recognise those at risk, how to prevent them and what to do when they do occur is vital knowledge for anyone involved in the care of those vulnerable to pressure ulcers.

Staff with different skill sets can work their way through the whole programme, or they can choose individual modules.

Pain management that works

In this session we will explore the prevalence and causes of pain in older adult residents and how that pain affects them in terms of cognitive, emotional and physical health and safety. We will look more closely at the relationship between pain and pressure ulceration in terms of increased risk and more challenging management, and explore management options including pharmacological, non-pharmacological and self-management.

Pressure Ulcer Prevention - No thank you

On occasions, individuals may decline a suggested care intervention which may lead to increased risk and conflict with staff wishing to add in these interventions. This webinar explores why people may make decisions about their care that healthcare professionals find challenging. Why HCPs find these decisions challenging. What national guidance there is around this topic. What you can do when a person decides not to adhere to suggested care interventions.
