The chief complications of prolonged hospitalization remain to be the formation of pressure ulcers, specifically in situations of poor nutrition, increased moisture on the skin (e.g., incontinence), prolonged pressure, and compromised sensory stimuli. These ulcers increase the cost of hospitalization, increase patient morbidity and mortality, and play a significant role in the spread of infection in the clinical area.
Proper knowledge on how pressure ulcer develops, its stages and methods of prevention are important for health professionals. Good knowledge and application of it into care will help prevent the risk of complications to a great level.
This course aims to improve the knowledge of health workers on these aspects of pressure ulcers, thus helping them to contribute to higher standards of care and improved outcomes.
