The Second Partners in Prevention: Culture of Safety Webinar
is One Week Away - Register Today!

The live webinar session, Designing Solutions for Creating a Culture of Safety for the Patient and the Nurse, will take place one week from today on Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017, from 1:00-2:00 pm EST. This session is free, but registration is required. Register now to reserve your spot!

This session will pick up where the first webinar in the Culture of Safety webinar series left off and will address:
  • How intense or prolonged pressure seen with immobility can lead to deep tissue pressure injury in patients.
  • How increasing mobility for patients can lead to back and shoulder injury in caregivers.
  • How caregivers can build a culture for sustainable change, along with a focus on skin and safe patient handling to reduce pressure injury.
