24-Hour Pressure Management: A Functional Perspective- Group Archive


When addressing ulcer prevention and treatment, being aware of and understanding clinical best practice guidelines is only the first step. Applying this information practically in a clinical setting can be challenging. Therapists have a large role to play in the functional application of pressure management practices and as a result need to approach pressure-related interventions in a systematic way. This session will explore the concept of functional pressure management evaluations, which allow therapists to assess the tasks that individuals carry out (and have the potential to learn) within their environmental context over the course of 24 hours and the impact those tasks have on extrinsic factors related to pressure ulcer development.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

1. Understand the concept of 24-hour pressure management from a functional perspective;
2. Identify a minimum of three common red flags that contribute to pressure ulcer development from a functional perspective;
3. Describe a minimum of three practical assessment techniques that can be used to evaluate these red flag issues;
4. Describe a minimum of three functional recommendations guided by best practice to address these red flag issues.
