STOP Pressure Ulcer Day 2023Published
On November 16th, healthcare professionals, the public and the media came together for World Wide STOP Pressure Ulcer Day – an annual global event that aims to raise awareness of pressure ulcers and the techniques that can be used to prevent them.
Pressure ulcers affect thousands of people every year in the UK, making the date one of the most important in the EPUAP calendar, particularly as major organisations such as NHS Improvement, SoTV and NPUAP are also taking part.
At Frontier Medical Group, we also played our part, supporting local and national STOP Pressure Ulcer Day events around the country. One way the team helped supporting events this year, was with our Pressure Ulcer Prevention Awareness Packs, designed to support clinicians and caregivers activities promoting pressure ulcer awareness within their organisations.
This was of course a small step, but from our experience of working with trusts and TVN teams, we’ve seen the impact pressure ulcers can have on all parties if not appropriately managed.
It’s one of the reasons why we have such a wide pressure ulcer prevention range, including the Repose range of pressure redistribution products and the Toto® Lateral Turning System. The range meets the diverse requirements of patients in both acute and community settings, providing effective pressure redistribution and offloading solutions.
You can find out more on the Repose section of our website, but if you too would like to get involved and help raise awareness of pressure ulcers and treatment, there are a number of ways you can join in, whether it’s through fundraising, education or online using the #StopPUDay2023 and #stopthepressure tags.
