Webinar Description:
Just when we think we’ve figured out pressure ulcer staging, it changes again. In April 2016, the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) held a consensus conference and announced new terminology and definitions regarding staging of pressure injuries (ulcers). Join us in this webinar to learn about the new changes and how to incorporate them into your clinical practice. In addition to the staging definitions causes and various tissue types seen in pressure injuries will be reviewed. Live webinar recording sponsored by McKesson.
