January 15, 2019 – The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) will host the 2019 Pressure Ulcer Summit (PrU Summit) on February 8 and 9, 2019 at the Westin Atlanta Airport Hotel. The Summit will be preceded by the workshop, “PrU Prevention Programs: Justify, Quantify, Strategize,” on February 7.

Using a new paradigm, where bedside experiences inform bench research, the PrU Summit agenda will follow a patient through the pressure ulcer management process while integrating research findings to provide a fully informed treatment algorithm.

This highly interactive program will leverage the combined knowledge of clinician and researcher participants for a deeper understanding of pressure ulcer problems.

The pre-Summit workshop will provide essential knowledge needed to maximize success of pressure ulcer prevention programs, with a focus on breaking through the barriers of culturally held norms, monitoring meaningful metrics, and institutionally prioritizing the programs by administrators, clinicians, and stakeholders. The workshop is ideal for Quality Improvement Specialists, Hospital and Facility Administrators, CNOs, Program Directors, Clinicians, and Skin Champion Team members.

The workshop and Summit are approved for continuing education credits for physicians, nurses, and physical therapists.
