The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC)'s Pressure Ulcer (PrU) Summit, which took place on October 7-9, 2021 in Atlanta, Georgia, was themed Reducing Health Disparities in Pressure Ulcer/Injury (PU/PI) Detection & Management. As part of AAWC's commitment to educating health care professionals on this important topic and thanks to the generous support from our sponsors and exhibitors, we are delighted to be able to offer a select number of presentations from PrU Summit for viewing on demand. 

Upon completion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Describe existing disparities related to pressure ulcer/injury (PU/PI) prevention and care.
  • Discuss challenges in providing equitable pressure injury prevention and care.
  • Describe characteristics of pressure injury and other damage of persons with dark skin tones.
  • Identify at least one method of leveling the playing field for pressure injury detection.
