World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day, November 15, 2018

A pressure injury seriously affects quality of life. The World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day is to increase national awareness for pressure injury prevention. Etac wants to focus on prevention and early detection of pressure ulcers.

Pressure ulcers are a serious problem. Bedridden people or those confined for long periods of time in stationary chairs or in wheelchairs are in danger of developing these sores. Most pressure ulcers are although preventable. The cost of preventing a pressure ulcer is much less than the cost of treatment. We must focus more on prevention and early detection of pressure ulcers.

Start building awareness!
