Welcome to Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Management Education for Adults with SCI
This program has been designed to help people with spinal cord injury prevent and manage pressure ulcers in daily life. The content is organized in three sections, Learning, Living and Looking. The Learning section includes important pressure ulcer topics along with stories that focus on real situations and problems faced by people with SCI. The Living section is an interactive case, Martha's story, that distills the challenges people face when they get a pressure ulcer. The Looking section contains a knowledge base of pressure ulcer prevention and management terms and images for instant access to the information users need.
