Welcome to the EPUAP podcasts where you will learn about pressure ulcer prevention and treatment. We are working on developing more online educational content that will benefit the EPUAP worldwide community. You can look forward to more content-rich podcasts in nearest future!
Podcast #3: Pressure ulcer prevention in a specific clinical setting: operation theatre
The third podcast aims to discuss a crucial topic "PU prevention in a specific clinical setting: operation theatre". Information in the podcast is based on speakers' professional experiences and their usage in the light of evidence-based practice. An essential part of the information presented is the introduction of a specific implementation project to support the quality of care in preventing perioperative pressure injuries. The authors believe that this will also ensure the translation of the experience and evidence-based practices to other facilities. At the very least, the podcast should be a starting point or way to provide an opportunity for constructive criticism of healthcare professionals working in perioperative care.
The presented implementation project in the podcast has been done as a part of the "Strategic Partnership in Innovation and Development of Evidence-Based Healthcare (2019-1-CZ01-KA202-061350)" funded by the European Union / Erasmus+ Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices.
We hope you find it beneficial.
