We're supporting World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day

At Spearhead we are joining with nursing homes, hospitals and care organisations all over the world to observe World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day, 16 November 2017.

Here at Spearhead we recognise the exceptionally high standards involved in looking after older people in care homes and nursing homes. We are proud to provide products and services that make the prevention of pressure sores and ulcers the norm.

Find out more about pressure care products that are designed to ensure that every care is taken to prevent pressure injuries in the care homes that we partner with.

World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day was first observed in 2013. The day is an important moment to recognise the important contributions of care staff in preventing pressure ulcers from occurring.

The annual celebration of World Wide Pressure Injury Prevention Day is sponsored by the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel.

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) is an independent not-for-profit professional organization dedicated to the prevention and management of pressure injuries in the United States. Formed in 1986, the NPUAP Board of Directors is composed of leading experts from different health care disciplines— all of whom share a commitment to the prevention and management of pressure injuries. The NPUAP serves as a resource to health care professionals, government, the public, and health care agencies; and welcomes and encourages the participation of those interested in pressure injury issues through utilization of NPUAP educational materials, participation at national conferences, and support of efforts in public policy, education and research.

The NPUAP, assisted by multiple corporations and organizations, has become an internationally recognized entity. The collaboration of professionals, corporations, and governmental agencies offers a unique model for addressing major health care issues. The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel and the Japanese Society of Pressure Ulcers have adapted the NPUAP model in establishing their organizations.
