Our theme for the week

‘Every contact counts’

We see this in the following way

  • Every contact with a clinician, healthcare professional or carer can help prevent pressure ulcers
  • Every contact with a bed, chair or other surface can help prevent pressure ulcers
  • Every contact with leaders in healthcare can help prevent pressure ulcers
  • Every contact on social media or traditional media can help prevent pressure ulcers

Industry support for the campaign
