That skin disruption may look like a pressure injury, but is it? Ensure your team is correctly identifying tissue damage that mimics pressure injuries but is NOT of pressure etiology. Accurate identification of skin disruptions is required for appropriate care planning, survey readiness, quality review, and to prevent legal issues for facilities. This presentation will describe etiologies that may be mistaken for pressure damage, including chronic tissue injury (CTU), Kennedy Terminal Ulcer (KTU)/skin failure, moisture associated skin damage (MASD), deep tissue pressure injury (DTPI), and others. Attend this program to enhance your differential recognition skills for pressure ulcer/injury appearing skin issues.

There’s an identified gap in formal nursing school education and wound prevention and management in long-term care and HCBS clinical services. The purpose of this webinar is to provide recognized needed education to the long-term care industry on current regulatory and evidence-based and best practices for wound prevention and care. This will be your opportunity to arm yourself with the information needed for better wound treatment/prevention and survey outcomes.

  • Identify etiologies that look like but are not related to pressure forces.
  • Describe the proposed etiology and appearance of chronic tissue injury.
  • Recognize the difference between skin issues that look like pressure etiology but are not.
