IC68: Research & Evidence-Based Practice for Pressure Management and Tissue Integrity

This presentation will review a variety of research studies relevant to pressure management and tissue/skin integrity. Methods of pressure management; tilt, recline, effects of surfaces on the skin and deep tissues all impact our clients and our daily practice. The research and evidence will be reviewed with the transfer of findings to clinical practice recommendations. Taking the findings and utilizing them to better assist our clients with practical strategies and adaptive device selection is imperative.

This session is supported by a company with reported interest in the sale of Assistive Technology products. The content has been reviewed by ISS personnel and determined to be appropriate for continuing education purposes.
