Our free service specific/specialist days promote the best practices in skin health and wound healing
The changes in the skin that occur as an individual ages affect the integrity of the skin, making it more vulnerable to damage. With a reduced ability to regenerate and a less efficient protective immune system, the elderly are at an increased risk of skin breakdown and so it is vital that care of the older person’s skin is seen as a priority.
This study day will provide relevant and useful information to guide those clinicians or carers who are responsible for the management of skin care in an ageing patient population.
Who’s the Skin health and wound care for older people study day suitable for?
This study day will be relevant to any clinician working directly or indirectly with older people. This includes hospital settings, community-based care, or care home settings. Generalist/ specialist nurses working in secondary care, community nurses, practice nurses, Tissue Viability nurses, podiatrists, Allied health professionals, nurses/ carers working in a care home setting, GPs, academics/ students with an interest in older people’s skin care.
There will be an interactive presentation of wound care products and preventative aids from our industry partners
Our Trustees look forward to welcoming you all virtually to the classroom
