On Thursday 25 September Tissue Viability Nurse Sarah Masterson presented a seminar to members about preventing pressure ulcers. The presentation explained to members how they can minimise the chances of getting pressure ulcers, signs to look out for and how they are treated. Preventing pressure ulcers is a quality priority for this Trust and therefore a key area of work.

The presentation was very well received and feedback from attendees showed:

  • 100% found the presentation useful
  • 100% found the presentation easy to understand
  • 100% agree that they now know more about preventing pressure ulcers than they did before

Comments included:

  • “Friendly, engaging presenter and useful information”
  • “Have learnt a great deal”
