Therapeutic Support Surfaces

Therapeutic Support Surfaces:The Past, The Present and The Future will be presented by Rosalyn S. Jordan RN, BSN, MSc, CWOCN, WCC and National Alliance of Wound Care Board Director.

What is going on with support surfaces? Join us in this session and find out about the work of the Support Surface Standards Initiative, a committee of the NPUAP. This committee was convened in 2002 with a goal: to standardize support surface terms and definitions and to develop standardized tests that will be used to measure the different support surfaces, determine how this lends to clinical outcomes and to study the effectiveness of support surface therapy.

This session will be presented on Thursday September 8,2011 at 2:15 p.m.-3:15 p.m.
