Pressure Ulcer Awareness Day

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) has declared November 16, 2012 “Pressure Ulcer Awareness Day”.

According to Dr. Aimee Garcia, NPUAP President, “Over 2.5 million US residents develop pressure ulcers every year.”  She adds, “The impact of pressure ulcers on the patient, the providers who are trying to prevent these wounds and the payers for health care has been underestimated for years.”

For more information, read the Pressure Ulcer Awareness Day Proclamation.

In January 2013, Tamarack Habilitation Technologies will join the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Corporate Advisory Panel; contributing to the research, education, and policy-making initiatives of the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel.
