Pressure Injury Risk Assessment
Join us for this webinar with Wendy White to discuss pressure injury risk assessment, and what that could look like in clinical practice. Understanding the dynamic nature of PI risk, and the impact of both mechanical forces and an individual’s tolerance and susceptibility, challenges us to ‘think differently’ about risk assessment today.This presentation will identify both modifiable and non- modifiable factors, differentiate between risk screening, and comprehensive ongoing risk assessment (inclusive of skin inspections) and challenge the practice of desktop vs bedside risk assessment – we urgently need both!
