NPUAP Webinar: Using Devices for Pressure Ulcer Prevention & Treatment on March 30th

Holly Harmon

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) is offering a FREE webinar Wednesday, March 30 from 1:00-2:00 PM ET, presented by Joyce Black, PhD, RN, CWCN, FAAN and Evan Call, MS, CSM (NRM).

Dr. Black and Mr. Call’s webinar, titled Using Devices for Pressure Ulcer Prevention & Treatment will compare and contrast the patient risk factors for pressure ulcer development that match support surface characteristics used for prevention. Explain the benefits to use of a low air loss or microclimate management surface, an alternating pressure surface and a continuous low pressure surface for the treatment of pressure ulcers. Describe how to determine if the support surface is working and describe how to develop an algorithm for the facility to use support surfaces.

This webinar is only open to the first 1,000 registrants so register today!
