“Pressure ulcers, which are largely preventable, cause distress to individuals and their families and create financial pressures for the NHS. While the treatment of pressure ulcers is mainly clinical, prevention is a shared responsibility.” Department of Health & Social Care,  January 2018

“Each month; Between 1,700 - 2,000 newly acquired pressure ulcers are developed in 72 hours or more, after a patient is admitted to our organisations (HSCIC)…Patients with pressure ulcers can stay on average 25 days in hospital…The cost of treating a pressure ulcer varies from £1,214 to £14,108. Costs increase with severity”  NHS Improvement, December 2017

We are pleased to announce the Pressure Ulcer Leadership Summit which has been developed as a result of feedback following the Stop the Pressure conference series. This summit aims to bring together tissue viability, wound care leads and senior nurses to discuss the important issue of leadership to eliminate avoidable pressure ulcers. The conference will provide you with the key skills and attributes to develop your role in leading the reduction of pressure ulcers in your service.

This summit will enable you to:

  • Develop, self assess and fine tune your leadership skills
  • Learn from established practice in eliminating pressure ulcers
  • Understand how to deliver change in culture and engage clinical teams
  • Network with colleagues who are working to eliminate pressure ulcers
  • Develop your skills in improving the prevention and management of pressure ulcers
  • Understand how pressure ulcers interface with safeguarding and the implications of the new National Safeguarding Adults Protocol 
  • Learn from established practice in getting patients up, dressed and moving to reduce risk: the #EndPJParalysis campaign
  • Develop your local strategy to eliminate pressure ulcers in your service
  • Develop your skills in leading root cause analysis and investigation of pressure ulcers
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence
