Residents with pressure injuries (PI) report lower levels of health-related quality of life, higher rates of depression, and higher rates of pain and discomfort, according to Health Quality Ontario.

In this one-hour webinar led by clinical consultant Jennifer Roach, you will learn how to assess the risk of pressure injuries in residents, discover eight components of an effective intervention bundle, explore how to put a PI prevention program in place, and identify ways to ensure the program is sustainable.

This Corporate Partner webinar, supported by Arjo, is free for AdvantAge Ontario full members.
