PI prevention and best practices in prone positioned patients
Webinar på engelsk
Prophylactic multilayer foam dressings are a widely accepted method of preventing pressure ulcers in patients considered to be at ‘high-risk’. Find out how clinicians can implement dressings as part of a prevention protocol to help protect vulnerable COVID-19 patients from pressure ulcers.
Pressure injuries (PI) continue to present substantial clinical challenges to health care professionals and place a huge economic burden on health care providers. They also have a huge impact on the quality of life of patients and their carers. Prone-positioned patients are particularly susceptible to PI.
Mölnlycke® invites you to join its webinar series to listen to key thought leaders offer insight into how they have addressed these challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
