Thursday, May 2, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PT.
This session will serve as the first in our two-part webinar series on pressure injury prevention. National-level experts on pressure injury prevention will review the existing science supporting a range of best practices and share a recently-published tool that captures these best practices for hospitals to use in their improvement efforts. A special focus will be placed on device-related injuries.
Summary from 5/2 Pacing Event: “Pressure Injury Prevention Series Part 1: Best Practices and A Look at Device-Related Injuries”
This session served as the first in our two-part webinar series on pressure injury prevention. In this session, national-level experts on pressure injury prevention reviewed the existing science supporting a range of best practices and shared a recently-published tool that captures these best practices for hospitals to use in their improvement efforts. A special focus was placed on device-related injuries, which is an area of exploration and improvement identified by HIINs and hospitals through data reviews and deep-dives. In addition, the discussion examined the implementation of best practices at the hospital level, including securing the needed buy-in and overcoming barriers.
The guest presenters for this event were:
William V. Padula, PhD, MS, MSc, Assistant Professor of Health Economics at the University of Southern California; Adjunct Faculty, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing; and Treasurer, National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), who reviewed and discussed the evidence-based best practices for pressure injury prevention, as well as presented the Standardized Pressure Injury Prevention Protocol (SPIPP).
Joyce M. Black, PhD, RN, CWCN, FAAN, Associate Professor in the College of Nursing at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, who co-presented the evidence base with Dr. Padula, provided a focused discussion on device-related injuries, and discussed the operational side of implementing prevention strategies.
Manish Mishra, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Family Medicine, and Director of Education, at the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, who provided a hospital-level look at addressing pressure injury prevention, including obtaining buy-in for addressing pressure injuries.
The session was moderated by Kendall Hall, MD (NCD).
