Why choose this course?

This course is recommended for disability support practitioners and will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent pressure injuries and provide effective support to clients at risk of pressure injuries.  

A pressure injury is damage to the skin and underlying tissue caused by prolonged pressure on an area of the body. This can happen when someone sits or lies in the same position for a long time without moving, causing blood flow to be restricted and leading to the development of a sore or ulcer. Pressure injuries can result in painful prolonged hospital stays, and at their worst, can be fatal.  

Pressure Injury avoidance is an important consideration for any care facility or service; most pressure injuries are considered preventable when correct prevention strategies are implemented.
