Many of the most used medical devices are frequently associated with device-related pressure ulcers which can cause life-threatening infections. The global scale of the problem is considerable and in 2019 an international group of medical professionals developed an international consensus statement on device related pressure ulcers: SECURE Prevention. Based on this ground-breaking consensus statement, this webinar, presented by one of the authors, will provide detailed advice on how to prevent debilitating device related pressure ulcers.
