  • I have just started on a ward and they use gloves filled with water for heals. What alternatives are there?

  • Our trust include sores resulting from oxygen masks and NG tubes in their pressure sore numbers. Is this correct?

  • There appear to be many uncertanties relating to the best way to prevent and treat pressure ulcers in both hospitalised patients and people at increased risk due to reduced mobility associated with long term conditions in the community. It is important to decide which of these uncertanties are a priority for future research. The James Lind Alliance Pressure Ulcer Partnership would like to know your uncertanties.
