Surgical Management of Pressure Sores (for qualified nurses)

8th Dec 2017


The Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre are planning to run a Study Day for Qualified Nurses – particularly Tissue Viability Nurses and Community Nurses caring for Spinal Cord Injured Patients with Skin Integrity problems.


“ Surgical Management of Pressure Sore at The Princess Royal Spinal Injuries Centre”

The day will include …

  • an A&P overview session
  • a taught session from one of our Consultants about Surgical Repair of pressure sore
  • the pros and cons of surgical management vs conservative management
  • exploring the patient experience
  • how to support a SCI individual with a pressure sore in the community

We have 2 potential 2017 dates for this SD …

Friday 2nd June

Friday 8th December

As this is a new SD, we are very much looking at these 2 dates as a pilot so there will only be a small charge of £15 – to cover refreshments and buffet lunch .
