Treatment & Management of Pressure Ulcers (Tissue Viability)

Ascend Learning Solutions

Pressure ulcers are caused when an area of skin, and the tissues below, are damaged as a result of being placed under pressure sufficient to impair its blood supply. Left untreated these can lead to significant health problems, loss of limbs or death. Therefore, it is imperative that all professionals working with at risk adults are aware of strategies to prevent and treat these localised sores.

Who should complete the course?

Healthcare professionals or anyone who cares for, or supports, people who are at elevated risk of developing pressure ulcers, such as those who have significantly limited mobility.

Aims

To provide delegates with the underpinning knowledge to enable them to safely recognise, report and promote the wellbeing of people at risk of developing pressure sores.

Outcomes

By the end of the course, delegates will have the skills to:

  • Recognise the risk factors in the development of pressure ulcers
  • Take preventative measures against the development of pressure ulcers
  • Manage pressure ulcers and promote healing
