Optimising skin health and wound healing in palliative care settings

Our free service specific/specialist days promote the best practices in skin health and wound healing


Palliative care is an approach to treatment that aims to improve the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem of life-limiting illness. Patients receiving palliative care may be at greater risk of skin breakdown and delayed healing because of the nature of their illness, however, this is not inevitable.

This study day will explore the specific areas of palliative care and will offer advice and guidance on reducing the risk of skin breakdown and what can be done to optimise the healing potential of wounds.
