TVS Trustees attending NPUAP

TVS Trustees Heidi Sandoz and Pauline Gilroy are attending the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel’s Pressure Injury Consensus Conference to be held at the end of February at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA. The conference hopes to develop a consensus on what variables/factors place an individual at risk for developing an unavoidable pressure ulcer. A secondary goal is to develop a registry as a database to predict pressure ulcer development and outcomes for unavoidable pressure ulcers. On their return, TVS Trustees will feedback to members the results of the conference.
