Product Description

Feed your skin care program this vitalizing information on nutrition.

If surveyors or a plaintiff attorney finds a resident with a non-healing stage 3 or stage 4 pressure ulcer hasn't received optimal nutritional interventions, watch out. Nutritional interventions often fall through the cracks because providers don't know what works -- or they fail to capture their nutritional interventions on the care plan and in the medical record.

Nutrition plays a key role in the development of pressure ulcers, and expert speaker Becky Dorner, RD, LD will tell you exactly how. In addition to reviewing the pressure ulcer staging system and its impact on health care providers, she’ll discuss the most current research related to medical nutrition therapy for pressure ulcer treatment -- and show you how to assess a patient’s nutritional needs.

In this jam-packed session you’ll learn:

  • Golden facts from the Nutrition White Paper published by NPUAP.
  • Calories, protein, amino acids, and more: How each type of nutrient plays a role.
  • 5 Must-have tips on assessing nutritional needs in relation to pressure ulcers.
  • How to apply new knowledge of nutrition and hydration to pressure ulcer cases.
  • More about the incidence -- and consequences -- of pressure ulcers in health care settings.
  • A closer look at the revised NPUAP pressure ulcer staging system.
  • Evidence supporting medical nutrition therapy in pressure ulcer treatment -- versus current standards of practice.
