Patients with spinal injuries are by definition immobile and insensitive. Join our FREE webinar to find out how can we make sure that every contact counts
Patients with spinal injuries are by definition immobile and insensitive – the 2 highest risk factors for pressure ulcer development. Their condition is usually irreversible and therefore they live with PU risk for the rest of their lives.
During the webinar we will discuss:
- For these people how can we make sure that every contact counts?
- What is the role of the specialist unit in education?
- For people who are treated at non specialist hospitals how can we insure that they are well supported and receive the best advice and care – what role do the support organisations such as SIA play?
- Whilst immobility is a key risk factor, the point of movement is also an incredibly high risk, what can we do to ensure people have access to the correct equipment and use it properly?
