Announcing our STOP THE PRESSURE 2020 campaign

14th September 2020

Following on from winning the Wound Care Today ‘Best Industry Digital Initiative’ earlier this month, Talley Group are delighted to formally announce the launch of their STOP The Pressure 2020 campaign.

With global STOP PRESSURE ULCERS day taking place on the 19th November we are working closely with a wide range of healthcare providers and partners both in the UK and in several countries around the world.

Our goal for STP2020 is to support all of our partners with class leading education and information specifically aimed at pressure ulcer prevention and management. Particular areas of interest that we will focus on in the run up to STOP PRESSURE ULCERS day include:

  • The patient voice and the lived experience of people directly affected by pressure ulcers
  • Pressure ulcer classification
  • The aSSKINg framework
  • Understanding PAC support surfaces
  • Patient and carer information
  • Pressure ulceration in darker skin

We are passionate about raising awareness around pressure ulcers with clinical staff, patients, family members and lay carers. We feel strongly that the more people we, and our STP2020 partners, can reach with the information and resources listed above, then the greater the opportunity to reduce the risk posed to patients by this recognised preventable patient harm.

Over the next few weeks we will be announcing the partner organisations that we are supporting for STP2020. In addition, we will also introduce you to the comprehensive range of Talley’s educational resources that you can access FREE of charge to enhance your own knowledge and understanding of pressure ulcers. You are of course very welcome to use these resources to help educate and inform other members of your team and your colleagues with an interest in pressure ulcer prevention and management.

To ensure you stay up to date with everything we are doing for STP2020 please keep an eye on our website news page and follow our social media feeds, remembering to use our dedicated hashtag #poweringPUprevention to follow the campaign.

Tissue Viability Nurse Sue Hopewell says:

The global STOP PRESSURE ULCERS campaign has gathered significant momentum over recent years and there is a clear need to deliver quality educational content to our UK and overseas partners in order to support their efforts at a local level.

This is the first year that Talley Group have run a dedicated educational campaign around STOP The Pressure and we are very excited to be working with so many fantastic partners and to be launching some brand new, free to access educational resources as part of this project.

On a personal level I am also particularly pleased to include the ‘voice of the patient’ as part of this project, and to look at the huge, and often life-changing impact a pressure ulcer can have on the patient and their immediate family. These highly personal accounts shine a very bright light on an area that is all too often forgotten as the focus is typically on the financial burden posed by pressure ulcers, or on reducing the incidence of these wounds within a patient population.

We hope you follow our campaign over the next couple of months and we would encourage you to comment-on, like and share our educational material because the more people that know about these wounds the greater the chance we have of preventing them.
