Bonus Episode 2 Progressive Mobility and Pressure Injury: What's the Link?


During this special bonus WOCTalk episode, we sit down with Joyce M. Black, PhD, RN, CWCN, FAAN, Professor, College of Nursing, University of Nebraska Medical Center. During this episode, Dr. Black speaks about the content from her webinar presentation, Progressive Mobility and Pressure Injury: What’s The Link?

Progressive mobility is the graded application of positioning and mobility techniques to return patients to prior levels of function. With critical or prolonged illness, recovery of function is slow and increases the duration of risk for pressure injury. This webinar addressed pressure injury prevention, at all levels of progressive mobility, and the ergonomic issues for nurses with these patients.

This podcast episode and the webinar were supported by an educational grant from Stryker.
