Western Branch Raising Awareness of Pressure Ulcer Prevention

December 16, 2013

Western Branch PU Day








Members of the western branch of WMAI coordinated events across Galway to support worldwide STOP pressure ulcer day. Dr. Georgina Gethin and Prof. Caroline McIntosh led on the campaign at NUI Galway which saw colleagues from different disciplines (nursing, podiatry and occupational therapy) come together in a bid to raise awareness of pressure ulcer prevention. Adelene Greene organised an excellent event at University Hospital Galway which included educational workshops and Kate Arkley was involved in raising awareness of pressure ulcer prevention within the local community. Thanks to all colleagues and companies who supported these events.
