If you missed it, check out the recording of our webinar with Dr. Joyce Black that presents learners with a deeper understanding of the etiology and pathophysiology of Deep Tissue Pressure Injuries (DTPIs) and Pressure Injuries (PIs) as well as risk stratification and prevention techniques. In addition, we will bridge the gap to the impact of hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs), the importance of present on admission (POA) documentation, and relevant regulations.
We will also discuss how providers can leverage the WoundVision Scout, a wound imaging technology that allows providers to move beyond the naked eye to improve documentation of the non-visible signs/symptoms of DTPI and aid in mitigation of HAPIs and Pressure Injury litigation.
This webinar may be of interest to nurses of all specialties, nurse managers, physicians, risk management, quality officers, materials managers, administrators, or any other stakeholders with interest in pressure injuries, hospital acquired conditions, or wound care.
Attendees will have an opportunity to learn the following:
1. Etiology/Pathophysiology of DTPI and why they can evolve into full-thickness Stage 3/Stage 4 PIs.
2. Identify risk factors for DTPI and PI development.
3. Methods for prevention of DTPIs and PIs.
4. The importance of POA documentation is it relates to Hospital-acquired Conditions (HACs).
5. How you can harness a new technology to aid in the shortcomings of visual skin assessment.
6. The clinical & financial impact of implementing this technology into your POA skin assessment.
