Anyone receiving a health or social care service shouldn’t suffer from a pressure injury or wound. By being aware of who is at high risk and carrying out the right checks, you can make a real difference in providing the best person-centred care.
Our Pressure Care and Moisture Lesion training course will teach learners about the skin and three layers, the oxygen and blood flow, what pressure ulcers and moisture lesions are and the difference between the two, the common pressure points, the signs and symptoms and the pressure ulcer grading.
It covers how to identify those who are at high risk of developing pressure ulcers, ways to prevent, treat and reduce the development of pressure ulcers and the properties of different dressings and their functions. Upon successful completion, learners will receive a downloadable and printable Pressure Care and Moisture Lesion certification.
