Using SEM measurement to drive treatment of early pressure ulcer development
Pressure ulcer or pressure injury affects thousands of lives and is a major concern for healthcare providers. With a focus on the risk assessment tools available to clinicians, Arjo is welcoming you to join Prof. Zena Moore – Professor and Head of the School of Nursing and Midwifery to explore how to use SEM measurement to drive treatment of early pressure ulcer development.
In this session, the following will be discussed:
• evidence from systematic review work highlighting the complexities in identifying early onset pressure injuries, and;
• the role of Sub Epidermal Moisture (SEM) in the early identification of pressure injury risk.
