Pressure Injury Prevention 2022: Building Adaptability and Reliability

Pressure Injury Prevention (PIP) in 2022 is more challenging than we have seen in our lifetime. Workforce shortages, absence of family at the bedside, supply chain issues, prone positioning, COVID skin manifestations and the increased use of medical devices for oxygen therapy have impacted hospitals’ ability to reliably deliver preventative care. In this interactive session, subject matter expert, Jackie Conrad will share newly emerging best practices from the field to address these challenges and engage participants in harvesting best practices within a hospital peer group.
