Learning Zone session at JCN study days

 Alongside two other companies, Invacare will be hosting a Learning Zone session at every JCN study day taking place in 2014 titled 'Support Surfaces in Clinical Practice'.

JCN_logoOver the last couple of years, there has been a growing focus on pressure ulcers with High Impact Actions being put in place, the introduction of the CQUIN (Commissioning for Quality and Innovation) framework, the National Patient Safety Agency introduced their Zero Tolerance initiative on pressure ulcers and the QIPP (Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention) agenda was implemented.

Following the introduction of these guidelines and initiatives, many clinicians are re-emphasising their holistic and managed approach to the prevention of pressure ulcers and management of resources. The Learning Zone session will give an overview of pressure ulcer grading, selecting suitable support surfaces in relation to pressure ulcer treatment and prevention and the importance of ensuring your equipment is fit for purpose.
