Take a moment to remember STOP Pressure Ulcer Day

Today is officially STOP Pressure Ulcer Day with events taking place around the country to draw attention to the debilitating nature of this mostly avoidable condition.

Pressure ulcers are costly to the healthcare services and painful for patients. As the patient population ages, with the accompanying comorbidities, the incidence and cost of pressure ulceration will grow. It is not surprising that the prevention of avoidable pressure ulcers is a key aim for all clinicians and healthcare organisations.

Everyone is invited to take part and share with others what they are doing to publicise the day so visit the EPUAP’s Stop Pressure Ulcer Day announcement page.

Join the Worldwide Stop Pressure Ulcer Day and help raise awareness of a condition that affects many people every year.
