    AAWC Publishes Pressure Ulcer Summit Proceedings

    The first annual Pressure Ulcer (PrU) Summit held on February 9–10, 2018, in Atlanta, GA, began a collaborative effort to provide clarity for health care providers and benefit patients on the issue of pressure ulcers. This international forum of leaders in wound care and PrU prevention and management sought to better define pressure-related tissue damage and wounds, assess the state of the science, and identify research opportunities, with an emphasis on clinical implementation of the evidence. Read a summary of the proceedings from this Summit.
