Experience our new PAC LEARNING ZONE at Wound Care Today 2019
13th February 2019
We will be showcasing a whole new pressure area care learning experience for delegates at WCT2019 later this month.
For clinicians, procurement and risk management to get the best out of any support surface it is essential they understand it from the technical, regulatory, commercial and clinical perspectives.
Technically we want our customers to understand how our PAC systems work and the key differences between them.
Regulatory approval is often assumed for all medical devices, however there is a clear chasm when it comes to unregulated Class I devices and highly regulated Class IIa devices. Our goal is to educate customers and to allow them to decide if they are happy placing vulnerable, at risk patients onto unregulated (Class I) support surfaces or independently approved Class IIa support surfaces.
Commercially it can help to take a longer term view of PAC product procurement. We are proud of our product quality and longevity and this results in highly cost effective products when viewed over the longer term. Whilst low-cost PAC products can offer short term financial gains they can potentially increase long term spend if support surface quality, reliability, longevity, safety or performance are compromised in any way.
Clinically, PAC products must be effective in contributing to a reduction in PU incidence. We consistently demonstrate that our PAC products work effectively as part of PU prevention care-bundles to help drive reductions in pressure ulcer incidence
At WCT2019 we will be using a combination of brilliant and informative on-stand presentations along with a new interactive touchscreen experience in order to;

Operations Director Kevin Mearns says;
We have deliberately taken a totally new and fully interactive approach to our exhibition stand at WCT2019. Our aim is to stimulate customers to think differently and to question all aspects of support surface provision, procurement and use.
We want to involve delegates and get them thinking hard about patient safety, support surface performance and product costs.
Giving delegates the knowledge they need to really question PAC manufacturers about their products will allow them to make a fully informed decision about which support surfaces are right for both their employer and their patients.
