Event description

Description

Historically management of the extrinsic risks in the development of pressure injuries has been primarily related to positioning options revolving around wheelchair and bed support surface utilization. Occupational and Physiotherapists provide seating and positioning solutions for an individual utilizing a wheelchair, while nurses tend to focus on management strategies of different bed support surfaces and repositioning while lying in these surfaces. However, better consideration must be given to a full, all-inclusive, 24-hour approach with recommendations of various strategies outside of the traditional wheelchair and bed options.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This program is designed for Physicians, Podiatrists, Nurses, Case Managers, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Therapy Assistants, CNA`s, medical equipment providers, and any other rehabilitation professionals managing pressure injuries and/or prescribing wheelchair seating products.
Level: Intermediate
Instructional Method: Lecture / Discussion

WHAT TO EXPECT

This interactive course with panel presentations and discussions will provide the participant an evidence-based approach in the consideration of pressure injury care related to a 24-hour trans-disciplinary positioning approach with strategies and management options to improve their clients outcomes.

The panel will include professionals with clinical wound specialization and expertise in seating and positioning.

A review of the current best evidence in the pathology of pressure injuries will be reviewed.

Terms and definitions will be reviewed including a detailed review of Deep Tissue Pressure Injury and the differences found versus superficial pressure injuries.

The majority of the focus will revolve around a 24-hour approach of positioning options including various out-of-bed recommendations, as well as, wheelchair seating and positioning solutions and bed support surface options. Participants will learn strategies for comprehensive evaluation, root cause analysis, and problem solving using case-based analyses.
