International Stop Pressure Ulcer Day

STOP Pressure Ulcer Day - 20th November 2014

STOP Pressure Ulcer Day is a global annual event in which industry, healthcare professionals, the public and media come together to help raise awareness of pressure ulcers; something many people are touched by every year. In 2012, the Declaration of Rio was created in which Spanish speaking countries (the first to hold STOP Pressure Ulcer Days) spoke out against people developing pressure ulcers. The aim of this annual event, which can now be seen taking place in countries all over the world, is to increase public knowledge in a bid to prevent pressure ulcers from forming and affecting so many people each year.
