Pressure Injury Classification

Is it really THAT important to get the label right?

Join us for this webinar with Wendy White to discuss pressure injury staging, and review and differentiate taxonomy recommended to describe this specific wound type.  Classifying pressure injury severity is more than just ticking a box. Identification of the specific tissue involved or exposed tells a story, one that can illuminate complication risk, expected clinical outcome, time to healing, and so much more. This presentation will review the current Pan – Pacific staging language and discuss every day challenges specific to anatomical location variables, reverse staging practices & using this taxonomy to describe other wound types.
