Various factors influence the development and healing of pressure ulcers. A clear understanding of the challenges and complex processes required to reduce the occurrence of pressure damage is vital for everyone from the healthcare assistant to the chief executive. Pressure ulcer prevention is a multi-disciplinary responsibility-and whilst nursing plays a pivotal role in reducing ulcers-all health and social care professionals who come into contact with patients need to understand pressure ulcer issues. This course will guide you through the aetiology of pressure ulcer development; outline the key steps required to prevent their development; and explain how you should manage them when they do occur.
