EVIDENCE-BASED PRESSURE ULCER RISK ASSESSMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION IN CLINICAL PRACTICE


The workshop will incorporate a short power point presentation to summarise the evidence base of risk assessment; the development of a new evidence based Risk Assessment Framework - PURPOSE T and active monitoring model of care incorporating primary and secondary Pressure Ulcer Prevention Pathways (PUPPs) developed as part of the NIHR PURPOSE Programme of research; and associated clinical implementation experience.

Using realistic community and acute vignette case studies, delegates will then have the opportunity to practice using PURPOSE T and PUPPs. Reflection and feedback will be requested to support implementation locally and internationally.

Learning Objectives:

1. Update understanding of key pressure ulcer risk factors and risk assessment practice.
2. Be confident using PURPOSE T and PUPP’s with vignettes.
3. Assess whether their current risk assessment practice is in line with the evidence base.
4. Consider issues affecting implementation of PURPOSE T and PUPPs in clinical practice.
