STOP the Pressure!

On Thursday 19th November 2020 we have one goal worldwide: STOP PRESSURE ULCERS

STOP Pressure Ulcer Day is a global annual event in which industry, healthcare professionals, the  public and media come together to help raise awareness of pressure ulcers – something many people are touched by every year. In 2012, the Declaration in Rio was created in which Spanish-speaking countries (the first to hold STOP Pressure Ulcer Days) spoke out against people developing pressure ulcers. The aim of this annual event, which now takes place in countries all over the world, is to increase public knowledge in a bid to prevent pressure ulcers from forming and affecting so many people each year.


The Tissue Viability Society along with their Corporate Sponsors and other industry partners would like to support Healthcare Professionals to take part in the International Stop Pressure Ulcer Campaign.

We have started to collate some useful materials within our Online Resource Centre, to help you plan your event, along with other materials which you may find helpful. Click the links for more information…
