Professional education programme to give insights and the training solutions that may be needed to drive change and advance patient outcomes within your healthcare organisation
Despite the existence of prevention protocols, pressure ulcers are still one of the most common hospital-acquired conditions . Pressure ulcer prevalence ranges between 7.3% and 23% in hospitals throughout Europe and North America . They can occur at any point during a patient’s stay in hospital (e.g. emergency room, operating room, intensive care unit, aged care, paediatric care settings) . High-risk areas for pressure ulcers include the sacrum, heel, back of the head, and underneath medical devices (e.g. face masks) . The Mönlycke Advantage Programme aims to give insights and training that may be needed to drive change and advance patient outcomes within your healthcare organisation.

PI prevention, trends and lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of patients are being admitted to ICU/CCU and cared for in a prone position for extended periods to aid mechanical ventilation. How can clinicians manage the increased risk of patients developing pressure ulcers as a result of prone positioning? Monday, 9 November 2020, 9:00 AM/6:00 PM CET Join webinar
Hard-to-heal Pressure Ulcers
In this webinar, Dr Paulo Alves will share his knowledge and experience within this area with emphasis on why debridement and exudate management is so important. Watch On-demand
Managing the burden of hospital acquired medical device related pressure ulcers
Due to the current global health care crisis, more patients are being admitted to hospital intensive care units where they can come in to contact with a vast number of different medical devices. Skin and tissue damage associated with these devices can take a long time to treat and result in permanent scarring. Watch on-demand
