EWMA Conference 2018

Patient Repositioning and the Properties of the Patient Support Surfaces Used

Pressure Reducing and Relieving Patient Support Surfaces and how to reposition patents effectively to minimise risk

1. To define the terms Pressure Reduction/Relief/and Reditribution.

2. To introduce delegates to the principles of how the generic surfaces work 

3. To practically demonstrate how and to allow the delegates to reposition a 'patient' on an appropriate support surface.
