Mölnlycke Health Care, together with some of the world’s leading experts, hosted an outstanding symposium on pressure ulcer prevention during this year’s European Wound Management Association’s conference in Vienna. Immediately after the symposium, the experts Professor Michael Clark (Visiting Professor of Tissue Viability, Faculty of Health, Birmingham City University, Birmingham, United Kingdom; President of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel), Paulo Alves (Assistant Teacher, Health Science Institute, Catholic University of Portugal, Porto, Portugal), and Professor Cees Oomens (Associate Professor in Biomechanics and Continuummechanics, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands)  answered questions from visitors to molnlycke.com and less-pain.com relating to the role of dressings in the prevention of pressure ulcers.
