European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) forum meeting set for April

From April 4-6, the EPUAP (external link, opens in a new window), together with World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) (external link, opens in a new window), will host a focus group in Berlin (external link, opens in a new window). In keeping with the themes EPUAP and WUWHS address in their work, the program will address topics, such as introduction to skin, skin function, skin aging and skin research; pressure ulcers in infancy and in aging skin and superficial skin changes in aged and dry skin.

Mölnlycke Health Care is an EPUAP partner, and as such, will participate in the forum as a part of the industry session. We will have a small stand with the thematic aim of establishing Mölnlycke Health Care as a leader in pressure ulcer prevention.
