Please find below a selection of resources for you to use in pressure ulcer prevention activities these are free to download.
They are primarily designed for use on International Stop the Pressure Day (Thursday 19th November 2020) but can of course be used at any time.
We have designed resources for each of the letters of the aSSKINg framework plus ones for heels and device related pressure ulcers, there are word cloud “love great skin” 'lozenges' the red dot with a little information about that specific letter, word searches and a quiz. We've suggested some answers to the quiz but you can personalise this to your local requirements.
We are asking organisations, individuals and companies to change their social media profile to either one of the “love great skin hearts or dots” or one of the lozenges for StP Day and are hoping to see Twitter, Facebook and Linked in flooded with pressure ulcer messages.
Please also remember to use the hashtags
You may want to distribute different red dots to different teams in your organisation - see the table to the right for some examples, and why not get the commercial companies you work with involved too!
