Registration is based on a first-come, first-served basis. There may be an opportunity on-site for you to attend a program that was previously filled. We will have a staging area for those interested in attending a full session.
Pediatric Pressure Injury Prevention

The Current State of Pediatric Pressure Injury Prevention in the U.S.
Member Spotlight Session
Tuesday, Jun. 5, 4:20 pm - 5:20 pm
1.0 Contact Hour

Why is this topic important to the WOC nurse and/or the non-WOC nurse?
This topic is important to WOC nurses and/or non-WOC nurses because pressure injuries continue to occur in pediatrics, and as rates or severity has decreased over the years there are areas pertaining to prevention and occurrence which need further exploration.

What do you hope attendees will learn from your session?
I hope that attendees will learn there are opportunities in clinical practice to improve prevention and opportunities for bundle implementation.

How can attendees transform their practice with the information from your session?
Attendees may transform their own practice or their institution's practice by reviewing their own current practice and identifying systems level changes which may impact rates.
