Real-World Evidence: Proven Results in Pressure Injury Prevention, is scheduled for 16 November 2017 – broadcast twice the same day, at 12pm and 15pm EST (US). Viewers can register and tune in live or watch the webinar on-demand. Register here.

During the webinar Dr William Padula will discuss the results of a recently published observational cohort that examined hospital-level data for 1.03 million patients in 38 academic medical centres: Effectiveness and Value of Prophylactic 5-Layer Foam Sacral Dressings to Prevent Hospital-Acquired Pressure Injuries in Acute Care Hospitals: An Observational Cohort Study. 

Viewers can also watch the pre-emptive 15 November 2017 global SPUD webinar featuring Professor Amit Gefen – recipient of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel's 2017 Experienced Investigator Award – who explored the science behind the question, 'Are all five-layer dressings equal in their effectiveness in preventing pressure ulcers?'

Professor Gefen was joined by Australia's Professor Nick Santamaria – co-author of multiple published studies on pressure ulcer prevention – who examined what the evidence says about the effectiveness of dressings in pressure ulcer prevention. This webinar is also free. Register here.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
