SMITH & NEPHEW WORKSHOP

Meeting room: Meeting room 1
Theme: Raising standards of care for reducing PU incidence and maintaining skin integrity

Speakers:

  • Prof. Zena Moore - Importance of a holistic approach to PU prevention (and treatment)
  • Dr. Cristiana Forni - Effectiveness of using a new polyurethane foam multi-layer dressing in the sacral area to prevent the onset of pressure ulcers in the elderly with hip fractures: A pragmatic randomized controlled trial
  • Assoc. Prof. Bill McGuiness - Measuring Microclimate: An RCT to explore the influences of foam dressing on pressure prone areas

Brief introduction of the workshop:

Maintaining skin integrity is a key goal in the prevention of pressure ulcers. Frequent skin assessment, the adoption of appropriate skincare regimes along with emerging therapies such as prophylactic dressings are considered important elements of a comprehensive prevention protocol in maintaining an optimal skin micro-climate. Recent evidence will be presented supporting these concepts and their impact reducing overall pressure ulcer incidence.
