PERFORMANCE: NHS Midlands and East has launched a new computer generated video on social website YouTube to highlight its campaign to prevent avoidable pressure ulcers.
The two-minute video for healthcare professionals includes information about pressure ulcers and advice on how to treat and prevent them in the first place.
The strategic health authority has also developed a pressure ulcer pathway to give practical tips to staff.
Pressure ulcers cause patients long term pain and distress and there is now a drive to try and reduce the numbers across the health sector.
The animation can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRYxmWKE-PI
