The joint initiative between EWMA and European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) has just published their latest article as part of the engagement in the pressure ulcer prevention and patient safety agendas at European and national levels.

The article entitled "The role of pressure ulcer prevention in the fight against antimicrobial resistance" focuses on how wound care and pressure ulcer prevention can play a key role in addressing antimicrobial resistance. Better wound care and early detection of pressure ulcers can prevent affected tissue infection, allowing faster resolution by uninterrupted healing and avoiding the need for antimicrobial interventions.
