Stop Pressure Ulcers 2017

 In News

EPUAP invites you to take part in a Stop Pressure Ulcers

In recent years we have seen ‘Stop Pressure Ulcer Days’ occurring in Spanish-speaking countries and in 2012 these organisations created a Declaration in Rio speaking out against people developing pressure ulcers. In 2017 there will be a Stop Pressure Ulcers to be held on November 16th 2017. The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel applauds the efforts of such events to bring pressure ulcers to the public, the professionals and our politicians. EPUAP has once again decided to join the Stop Pressure Ulcers to help publicise pressure ulcers. To this end we will continue to provide freely available publicity material on our website.

As a first start we have provided here both the Declaration of Rio and the proposed logo for the Stop Pressure Ulcers and would be delighted if you also wanted to participate on November 16th 2017 to help bring pressure ulcers to a wider audience.

More resources are available on our main STOP Pressure Ulcer Day page.

Keep watching the EPUAP website for ongoing news about this important day.

Download a copy of the Declaration of Rio, in English and/or a higher resolution copy of the 2014 version Declaration in Rio logo.
