The heel is the second most common location on the body for pressure ulcers. Heel pressure ulcers can be both very debilitating and very painful, and can require months to heal. Learn why the anatomy of the heel makes it particularly vulnerable to skin breakdown, and how to assess for, prevent, and treat pressure ulcers occurring on the heel. Join us to hear about the 2009 NPUAP EPUAP International Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Treatment Guidelines specific to preventing and treating heel pressure ulcers.
