EPUAP Podcast #3: PU Prevention in a Specific Clinical Setting: Operation Theatre
Listen to the 3rd episode of a newly released EPUAP podcast on Spotify, Anchor, Breaker, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts or RadioPublic.
The third podcast discusses a crucial topic “PU prevention in a specific clinical setting: operation theatre”. Information in the podcast is based on speakers’ professional experiences and their usage in the light of evidence-based practice. An essential part of the information presented is the introduction of a specific implementation project to support the quality of care in preventing perioperative pressure injuries. The authors believe that this will also ensure the translation of the experience and evidence-based practices to other facilities. At the very least, the podcast should be a starting point or way to provide an opportunity for constructive criticism of healthcare professionals working in perioperative care.
The presented implementation project in the podcast has been done as a part of the “Strategic Partnership in Innovation and Development of Evidence-Based Healthcare (2019-1-CZ01-KA202-061350)” funded by the European Union / Erasmus+ Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices.
