Stop Pressure Ulcer Day 2015 – join the campaign

CFW is urging care home managers and nursing professionals to help raise awareness of the issue of pressure ulcers ahead of 'Stop Pressure Ulcer Day' on November 19.

The day is being supported by the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) again in 2015.

CFW's policy adviser, Melanie Minty said: "This campaign is of relevance to everyone who works in the care sector, particularly in residential care and for social care nurses.

"We'd like to encourage care home managers to increase awareness among their staff of the debilitating effects of pressure ulcers and if possible promote the awareness day in November."

  • Awareness-raising materials and a flyer is available here
  • The campaign is being organised by the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel - see the EPUAP website for more information
