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.
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.
