Invacare’s Think Pressure Care team is now working in partnership with a healthcare group which looks to improve clinical practice in wound prevention and management.
The supplier announced its backing for the Tissue Viability Society (TVS) as a corporate sponsor yesterday.
The Think Pressure Care initiative from Invacare supports the aim of pressure ulcer prevention, which plays an important role in patient safety and clinical outcomes by providing a range of high specification pressure redistributing equipment.
Think Pressure Care also helps to raise awareness of pressure ulcers throughout NHS Trusts, Local Authorities and organisations involved in community and residential care, with a suite of resources tailored to clinicians, patients and carers.
The Tissue Viability Society supports multi disciplinary members from a range of healthcare professions who have a vested interest in tissue viability. It currently has more than 600 members encompassing a wide range of professions involved in tissue viability.
The mission of TVS is “to disseminate information, promote research and increase awareness of all aspects of good clinical practice in wound prevention and management”.
“By partnering with an opinion leading organisation such as the Tissue Viability Society, Invacare is able to support the society’s aim of best clinical practice in Tissue Viability. Partnerships such as these, help Invacare maintain their market leading position by keeping abreast of clinical, industry and NHS initiatives and ensures that we are fully engaged in dialogue on the important topic of pressure ulcer prevention and treatment,” commented, Annie Allsopp, Invacare’s Clinical Specialist for Pressure Area Care.
With a full range of dedicated resources providing clinical advise, product information and training to support healthcare professionals with their pressure ulcer prevention strategies, Invacare’s Think Presssure Care team see the partnership with TVS as an exciting opportunity to reach out to an even wider audience, the firm said.
