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.
