Course Outline

Pressure ulcers are extremely distressing and painful for the individual.

It is a sad fact that most pressure ulcers could have been prevented if staff are trained to recognise those at risk and are able to adopt preventative best practice.

This workshop will give staff tools to assess risk and to minimise the occurrence of pressure ulcers.

On completion delegates will be able to:


Describe the physiology of the skin

Explain principles of care for people at risk

List the factors of tissue breakdown

Demonstrate preventative measures to avoid tissue breakdown

Recognise & grade pressure damage

Provide effective care & treatment of pressure ulcers
