Pressure injury prevention

Ask the experts - Professor Michael Clark on pressure injury prevention guidelines

By : Mölnlycke Health Care, May 29 2012Posted in: Pressure injury prevention

Are there any guidelines relating to the use of dressings for the prevention of pressure ulceration? If so, where can they be found? If not, should guidelines be developed?1  


Mölnlycke Health Care, together with some of the world’s leading experts, hosted an outstanding symposium on pressure injury prevention during this year’s European Wound Management Association’s conference in Vienna. Immediately after the symposium, the experts Professor Michael Clark (Visiting Professor of Tissue Viability, Faculty of Health, Birmingham City University, Birmingham, United Kingdom; President of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel), Paulo Alves (Assistant Teacher, Health Science Institute, Catholic University of Portugal, Porto, Portugal), and Professor Cees Oomens (Associate Professor in Biomechanics and Continuummechanics, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands)  answered questions from visitors to and relating to the role of dressings in the prevention of pressure injuries.
