Patient Repositioning and the Properties of the Patient Support Surfaces Used

The workshop objectives are:

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.
