EPUAP statement on COVID-19 situation in healthcare
Dear EPUAP members and partners,
The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated 2020 as the “Year of the Nurse and Midwife”, in honor of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, known for pioneering modern nursing. This year belongs indeed to all nurses but also doctors and other medical and allied health professions who are putting themselves on the frontline to offer the best possible care to those in need. EPUAP stands by all healthcare workers during this crisis and would like to recognize and applaud the efforts made by healthcare professionals in all countries.
The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) provides a platform for clinicians, researchers, educators, policy makers, industry, and the public to collaboratively work on improved health outcomes for those at risk or suffering from pressure ulcers. EPUAP provides EU wide education and campaigns with accessible resources for clinicians and the public and supports international and interdisciplinary research activities and partnerships. An important focus is the development of cross-continent international clinical guidelines to support practitioners in making informed decisions about interventions for prevention and treatment.
