Stop Pressure Ulcer Day

September 3rd, 2012

The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) invites you to take part in a Stop Pressure Ulcer Day


In recent years ‘Stop Pressure Ulcer Days’ have occurred in Spanish-speaking countries and last year these organisations created a Declaration in Rio to help reduce the occurrence of pressure ulcers.

In 2012 there will again be a Stop Pressure Ulcer Day to be held on November 16th 2012. EPUAP has decided to join the Stop Pressure Ulcer Day to help publicise pressure ulcers. All publicity material will be placed on EPUAP’s website over the summer.

Keep watching the EPUAP website for news about this important day.

Supporting this effort, the Welsh Wound Network met in Caerphilly on Friday 20th July to agree the steps  that will be taken in Wales to support the worldwide Stop Pressure Ulcer Day.
