The aim of this guide is to provide up to date information regarding the risk of developing a pressure ulcer through sitting for long periods of time.
Update November 2020
The TVS held their very first Webinar on Thursday 12 November to share those successes and explore the challenges faced by clinicians from an academic and practical perspective. The event was of value to all nursing and Allied Health Professional Groups in addition to patients and carers wanting to understand how the guidelines can support good seating and posture and aid the prevention of skin damage related to all things seating.
