My approach to long-term care education has always been to have fun and leave a lasting impression so that my audience will learn. Anyone that has been to one of my skin and wound care classes will validate this (*wink wink*).

I would like to share a few ideas for promoting not only pressure ulcer prevention and awareness, but to check off your nursing staff on skills. It can be a challenge getting employees motivated.
