Pressure Ulcers to Zero Collaborative sets out its goals

13 March 2014

The Pressure Ulcers to Zero Collaborative, which features RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland)'s Professor Zena Moore, held the first learning and action planning day on February 27th 2014. Participating teams from across the Dublin North East Region had the opportunity to meet with each other as well as with collaborative leaders as they set about planning their own team actions and goals for the months ahead.
The learning day was facilitated by Annette Bartley Quality Improvement Consultant and also featured presentations by Professor Zena Moore, Head of the RCSI School of Nursing, Julie Jordan O' Brien, Beaumont Hospital and Cornelia Stuart Regional Quality and Patient Safety Manager, HSE Dublin North East.

The collaborative is now underway and will run until September across the HSE Dublin North East Region. In the video below, Prof Moore talks about the importance of preventing pressure ulcers.

In January both Prof Moore and Julie Jordan O'Brien spoke about wound management in a RCSI MiniMed public lecture. Watch this talk here:
