Pressure ulcers cost the NHS £2.1 billion per year (4% of NHS annual total expenditure). Pressure ulcers can result in painful treatment, loss of confidence and mobility. However, this unnecessary pain can be prevented through a strong network of clinical care.

The review of the NICE Quality Standards in August provides an opportune moment to reflect on current practices and ensure higher standards are being met. This interactive course provides in depth guidance on preventing and managing pressure ulcers.

Our Implementing NICE Quality Standards ‘Pressure Ulcers’ training course covers the following key topics: NICE Quality Standard Review; innovative prevention techniques; and you will learn to implement a pressure ulcer reduction strategy.

Work with expert trainers and speakers to gain further knowledge in best practice and develop an understanding of new prevention techniques. Leave the day confident with a pressure ulcer strategy that meets the requirements of the latest NICE Quality Standards and NMC guidance.
