National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Research Symposium

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel has just posted information about its 2016 NPUAP Research Symposium, hosted at Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel, November 9, 2016.

This is a great opportunity for clinicians, researchers, engineers, and others in the healthcare field to learn more about the latest developments in pressure ulcer (bedsore) prevention. No longer is pressure considered the most important factor, as the presence of shear force and microclimate (heat and moisture) are increasingly recognized as key contributing factors in pressure sore formation.
