This project addressed the unacceptable level and duration of avoidable skin breakdown in frail elderly people, by improving the skills of the workforce who support these people in the assessment and management of skin integrity and tissue viability.  It was recognised for an HSJ award in 2014 in the Patient Safety Category.  Full details of the work can be found in the following pages on this site (see box on the left) and in the section located on header line.
