In 2017 the TVS published ‘Understanding the association between pressure ulcers and seating in adults: What does it mean for me and my carers?’ The UK’s first dedicated guideline for seating. A recent survey revealed that these guidelines have been adopted into practice in many different ways, some successfully, some not so.
