Event Date:

This workshop is aimed at home care workers, care assistants, student nurses, AHPs and nursing auxiliaries.  Pressure Ulcers are preventable and care staff have a crucial role to play in protecting those in your care from considerable pain and in worse case scenarios amputation.  This session will cover how pressure ulcers develop, identifying patients/clients at risk, assessing a patient’s skin and how to prevent them.   It will be delivered by  Jennifer Mullan, Tissue Viability Nurse, Western Trust
