Pressure Ulcer Prevention & Management in Critically Ill Patients
Wednesday 2nd December 2020
Patients being cared for in intensive care units are particularly at risk of pressure ulcers because they often lack the ability to change position independently. During the current Covid-19 Pandemic patients have been seen to benefit from lying in the prone position (face down) however this can also put them at risk of pressure damage.
Chaired by Tina Chambers Past Chair The Tissue Viability Society Tissue Viability Consultant, Educator and Advisor& Member Stop the Pressure Clinical Workstream, The National Wound Care Strategy Programme, this virtual conference focuses on pressure ulcer prevention in critical care. Delegates will have the opportunity to virtually network with colleagues who are working to improve the measurement, reporting and reduction of pressure ulcers and harm in critically ill patients, self assess and reflect on your own practice and gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence.

DDRC Wound Care are pleased to confirm that we have recommenced clinics offering appointments for basic nail trimming only and clinics will not run every day.
We have made some changes to our procedures in line with current government recommendations. You will need to wear a face covering or mask for the duration of your appointment. We can provide one if you do not have a covering of your own. We also ask that you attend the appointment unaccompanied unless you require specific assistance that requires the attendance of a carer. The carer must also wear a face covering or mask.
You will receive further information about attending for your appointment when you book. Call 01752 237111 or email [email protected]
Podiatry service: Mags Pope is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and offers a range of appointments including nail care, foot care and musculoskeletal assessment and treatment (exercise or insole provision if necessary). We hope to resume this service soon.
