Pressure Ulcers: Monitoring, Reporting & Improvement
Mon 1 July 2019 to Mon 1 July 2019, De Vere West One Conference Centre, London
This conference focuses on Pressure Ulcers: monitoring, reporting and improvement in line with the 2018 NHS Improvement recommendations and guidance.
“Pressure ulcers are a key indicator of the quality and experience of patient care. Despite progress since 2012 in the management of pressure ulcers they remain a significant healthcare problem, with over 1,300 new ulcers reported each month with up to 200,000 people developing a new pressure ulcer in 2017/18. Treating pressure ulcers costs the NHS more than £1.4 million every day (Guest et al 2017).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. Preventing them will improve care for all vulnerable patients.” NHS Improvement November 2018
Chaired by Tina Chambers, Past Chair of the Tissue Viability Society, Tissue Viability Consultant, Educator and Advisor, this national conference focuses on Pressure Ulcers: monitoring, reporting and improvement in line with the 2018 NHS Improvement recommendations and guidance.
