Pressure Ulcer Care

Pressure Ulcer Care

Essential information for the management of pressure ulcers in primary and secondary care environments

A pressure ulcer, also commonly referred to as a pressure sore or a bed sore, can best be described as a breakdown of the skin and underlying tissue.

Pressure ulcers usually occur over bony areas (such as the sacrum, buttocks, heels, ankles, hips, shoulders, elbows, and head), but can occur anywhere on the body, with the damage ranging from skin redness to deep ulcers which involve fat, muscle and bone.

This short course intends to raise awareness to the key issues and guidelines for the management of pressure ulcers in primary and secondary care environments and provides useful information for anybody working with individuals who (for whatever reason) become susceptible to pressure ulcers.
