Pressure Ulcer Prevention

Over the last 18 months, the Leeds Health and Care Academy has been working in partnership with the Leeds Pressure Ulcer Prevention Improvement Group, a collective of clinical experts employed by various partners, whose purpose is to align the practice and approach to pressure ulcer prevention training, awareness and delivery across health and social care in Leeds.  

Together, we have worked to identify and adopt an eLearning for Health virtual package which was launched earlier this year. The Pressure Ulcer Prevention training is based on national guidance and provides training on how to identify and manage some of the risk factors that can cause pressure ulceration. By adopting a collaborative approach to pressure ulcer prevention training, we can align our practices across the city and ensure the best possible care for our patients and service users

The training package is relevant to all health and social care colleagues, volunteers and carers in Leeds who work directly with patients and service users. The poster at the top of this page has been created to raise awareness of the free-to-access training. If you would like to download this digital poster to share with colleagues in your teams, you can access it via this link. 

The training can be accessed for free on the Leeds Health and Care Learning Portal via the button below.
