tvs-stop-the-pressure-image-sue-simmondss-conflicted-copy-2016-11-10STOP 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.

On Thursday 17 November 2016 we have one goal worldwide:  STOP PRESSURE ULCERS
