Bear of a Problem: Who Should be Sleeping in Which Bed?
This NPUAP Webinar will be presented in 2 parts. The first half will cover the Support Surface Initiative (S3I) terms and definitions, support surface selection criteria, and a literature review addressing prevention and treatment interventions utilizing support surfaces as part of a comprehensive pressure ulcer prevention program. The second half of the webinar will focus on the testing and reporting standards related to immersion, envelopment, shear, friction and micro-climate.

This one-hour webinar presented by Dianne Mackey, MSN, RN, CWOCN and Evan Call, MS, CSN (NRM) will discuss the categories of support surfaces, state the various features of a support surface, identify 3-4 patient criteria to be used when selecting an appropriate support surface for prevention and/or treatment, and describe the physical concepts of support surfaces that are currently being tested in the laboratory setting.

Determining Incidence and Prevalence Rates of Pressure Ulcers
This April 10, 2014 webinar was presented by Dr. Joyce Black with the focus on determining incidence and prevalence rates of pressure ulcers. This webinar answers the questions of how do you determine the number of pressure ulcers in your facility? How do your rates compare to others? This webinar provides a method on how to compute the rates in your facility and introduces a method of computing pressure ulcer rates using 1,000 patient days in order to stabilize comparisons.

Discussion and Decisions About DTI from the NPUAP Consensus Conference
This April 17, 2013 webinar was presented by Dr. Joyce Black. Deep tissue injury (DTI) was the focus of the recent NPUAP Consensus Conference, held February 22–23, 2013 in The Woodlands (Houston), Texas. Experts from around the world were gathered to discuss and address a wide range of issues pertaining to DTI. State-of-the- art science and clinical data was presented throughout the meeting.

If you were unable to attend the conference, you can still “catch up with the latest” thinking about these pressure ulcers. For example, must there be a history of pressure applied to the area where DTI is now found before you can call the skin ulcer a DTI?

Hot Pressure Ulcer Topics: Chair Cushion Selection, Heel Ulcer Prevention & Safe Handling Equipment
This December 4 webinar was presented by Joyce Black, PhD, RN and Michelle Deppisch, PT, CWS, FACCWS.

Chair cushion selection includes a basic understanding of the pressure redistribution capability of the product and matching that to the patient’s level of mobility independence to achieve best fit and prevent shear and friction. The heel is the second most common site pressure ulcer site. Understanding the anatomy can improve prevention and treatment strategies and product selection for off-loading. Patient safe handling requires staff education for proper device selection of equipment not only to protect themselves but also the patient. The bariatric patient presents unique challenges for repositioning and mobility to reduce pressure ulcer risk.

Is Prevention Really Less Expensive Than Treatment?
Dr. Braden will cover research literature on cost of prevention and treatment, examining cost and cost effectiveness studies from the U.S., U.K. and Canada. Examples will be given for cost-effectiveness in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, hospitals, operating rooms and emergency departments. Findings related to cost by state of pressure ulcer will also be covered. A simple model that may be helpful to clinicians who are defending the costs to administrators will be covered. Components that enter into costing of care will also be discussed.

MDS 3.0 Sections K & M: What are the Requirements for Long Term Care?
October 1, 2010 the MDS changed from 2.0 to 3.0 and with it numerous revisions to enhance risk assessment and tracking of health outcomes. This webinar will discuss changes made and the requirements in complying with the regulations for completion of Section K (Swallowing/Nutritional Status), and Section M (Skin Conditions/Pressure Ulcers).

This one-hour live webinar presented by Elizabeth Ayello, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, CWON, MAPWCA, FAAN and Mary Litchford, PhD, RD, LDN to discuss the components of Section K (Swallowing/Nutritional Status) that are instrumental for risk assessment and treatment of pressure ulcers, describe the criteria for “Worsening in Pressure Ulcer Status Since Prior Assessment”, differentiate the “Most Severe Tissue Type for Any Pressure Ulcer” and recognize what “Other Ulcers, Wounds and Skin Problems” are addressed on Section M of the MDS 3.0

Medical Device Related Pressure Ulcers (MDRPU): THe Hidden Epidemic Across the Lifespan
While the advent of pressure ulcers secondary to medical devices is not a new phenomenon, historically these ulcers have not been captured in most prevalence and incidence databases and widespread prevention measures have not been implemented. This NPUAP Webinar will cover MDRPU epidemiological data, risk identification across the lifespan, as well as implications for practice.

This one-hour webinar presented by Mona Mylene Baharestani, PhD, APN, CWON, CWS to define medical device related pressure ulcers, examine medical device related pressure ulcer epidemiological data and describe interventions aimed at the prevention of medical device related pressure ulcers across the lifespan.

One Size Does NOT Fit All!
The January 12, 2012 webinar entitled One Size Does NOT Fit All! addresses that sometimes it’s hard to know how to provide nutrition care for pressure ulcers, especially when individuals vary from the older adult with unintended weight loss to the person who is obese. The NPUAP webinar presenters will cover the topic of sarcopenia (loss of lean body mass), a serious nutritional problem for both the frail older adult and the obese person, which can lead to risk of pressure ulcer development. Do you understand the role of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers? The NPUAP–EPUAP Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Treatment guidelines are the most current evidence based research available related to medical nutrition therapy (MNT). Presented by: Becky Dorner, RD, LD and Mary Ellen Posthauer, RD, LD.

Pressure Ulcer Documentation: Telling a Complete, Accurate and Legally Defensible Story
Presenters: Joyce Black, PhD, RN, FAAN, CWCN and Diane Langemo, PhD, RN, FAAN

When a legal challenge is placed, the “bible” of what happened or did not happen is the patient record. As the legal challenges often come years after the fact, it is imperative that your documentation be thorough, accurate, and timely, as “all roads” lead back to the written record. Your documentation must be legally defensible in a court of law.

This one hour webinar will review what and how to document related to interventions for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment. Practical suggestions will be presented on how to document defensively and examples of what to do and not to do will be provided.


After this presentation, participants will be able to:

1. Apply documentation strategies to your charting in patient/client records.
2. Evaluate whether or not your documentation related to pressure ulcer prevention, assessment and treatment meets the standards
3. Recommend best documentation practices for pressure ulcer documentation.

Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Management: An Update for Physicians and Mid-Level Providers
This August 12, 2014 webinar was presented by Aimee Garcia, MD, CWS and Mary Sieggreen, MSN, CNS, NP, CVN. Often clinicians are unaware of what is required by third party payers and regulatory organizations on the assessment and documentation of pressure ulcers. The purpose of this webinar is to assist clinicians in pressure ulcer recognition and definition, to differentiate pressure ulcers from other types of wounds, to identify the components of a comprehensive pressure ulcer assessment, and to identify the critical elements of documentation.
