“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

Chaired by Tina Chambers Past Chair Tissue Viability Society this national CPD conference focuses on a practical guide to eliminating heel pressure ulcers and improving care and treatment in your service. 

National updates and practical case studies will provide essential guidance on:

  • Reducing avoidable heel pressure ulcers 
  • Changing practice in the early detection of heel pressure ulcers 
  • Reducing the incidence of hospital acquired heel pressure ulcers in practice 
  • Undertaking effective Heel Checks 
  • React to Red: Communicating heel pressure ulcer prevention 

PLUS: The conference will also include a pre-conference supplier showcase to update delegates about the latest product developments in this area. Promedics Orthopaedics Ltd will look at reducing risk of pressure ulcers with a heel relief boot.  

100% of delegates at our previous conference on this subject would recommend the event to a colleague.
