The conference will continue with practical case studies in reducing pressure ulcers, in-depth extended sessions focusing on pressure ulcer grading and reporting including unstageable pressure ulcers, and developing your skills in root cause analysis and investigation. There will be an evidence update session looking at the latest evidence on risk assessment, factors associated with severe pressure ulcers and pain as an indicator of pressure ulcer development. The event will also look at this issue of avoidability and discuss the latest consensus on what is actually considered unavoidable. There will also be a focus on the important issue of eliminating pressure ulcers in the community.
