EWMA supports STOP Pressure Ulcer Day 2018 on 15 November!
EWMA & EPUAP raise attention on pressure ulcers and patient safety at EPUAP 2018
STOP Pressure Ulcers Day is a global annual event in which industry, healthcare professionals, the public and media come together to help raise awareness of pressure ulcers.
EWMA collaborates with EPUAP to influence the pressure ulcer prevention and patient safety agendas at the European as well as national level. Already next week, EWMA and the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) are raising attention on pressure ulcers (PU) and patient safety in a joint session at #EPUAP2018 in Rome.
The session includes presentations on data collection, OECD action on international measurement of PU prevalence, and lobbying at the EU level -> http://epuap2018.org/
