Launching NEW clinical education resources at Wound Care Today 2020
18th February 2020
We are delighted to be launching two new clinical education resources at the Wound Care Today conference in Milton Keynes later this month.
The Clinical Affairs team at Talley Group are focussed on delivering the highest quality clinical education and information to all healthcare professionals with an interest in pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.
Our new ‘Introduction to Pressure Ulcers; a clinical resource’ is a dedicated, evidence based, clinical educational resource that provides the reader with a broad knowledge base around pressure ulcer definition, classification, prevalence and the costs associated with these wounds.
This document also looks in greater detail at the critical pressure ulcer risk factors such as pressure and shear, along with the importance of time in pressure ulcer development and relates these to patient physiology, immobility and support surfaces.
To reduce the risk of preventable pressure ulcers and improve patient outcomes we believe that all clinical and care staff need a solid understanding of how key pressure ulcer risk factors interact with each other and the impact these have on patients. Having this knowledge can empower healthcare staff to make an informed choice when matching the support surfaces at their disposal to individual patients’ pressure area care (PAC) needs.
To support the launch of our ‘Introduction to Pressure Ulcers’ document we are also giving away hundreds of our new PU Classification pocket guides. These brilliant fold-out guides are designed to help clinical staff correctly classify any pressure ulcers they come across at the bedside.
Our goal at Talley is to STOP pressure ulcers by helping clinicians and carers deliver safe, effective, harm-free care to patients so we hope you find these clinical resources both educational and informative.
To pick up your FREE copies please come and visit our friendly team of PAC experts on stand 75 at WCT2020 at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes. If you are unable to attend the conference then don’t worry as these will be available on our website from the 1st of March.
Honorary Tissue Viability Nurse Sue Hopewell says;
As a practicing TVN I am hugely passionate about ensuring our pressure ulcer and pressure area care education is of the highest quality and freely available to all levels of clinical staff, carers and patients.
The Clinical Affairs team at Talley have worked hard to get these fantastic educational resources ready for launch at WCT2020 and I am delighted to be using the dedicated ‘PAC Education Station’ on our exhibition stand to be launching these brilliant documents.
This year at Talley we have a real focus on PAC education, and we are running some exciting projects over the next few months so watch this space for more information.
Our WCT2020 conference team are all looking forward to welcoming you to our exhibition stand so come and say hi, pick up your FREE new clinical education resources and find out how we can help you #stopthepressure on your patients.
