THE BIG QUESTION

The big question: what are the barriers to preventing pressure ulcers?

  • Comment

On the 20 November it is the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel’s Stop Pressure Ulcer Day 2014.

The aim of the day is to raise awareness of pressure ulcer prevention among the public, health professionals and politicians.

Other initiatives to tackle the issue include the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Trust’s React to Red Skin campaign. Its main message is that if members of the public react to red skin over bony areas and ask a health professional for help, then red skin can be prevented from becoming a serious wound.

What else can we do to reduce the prevalence of pressure ulcers?
