Details

The pressure ulcer productivity calculator was developed to help NHS organisations and commissioners understand the productivity and cost elements associated with treating patients with pressure ulcers. The tool has been developed using the results of research into the cost of pressure ulcers in the UK and will also assist in the long term reduction of pressure ulcer incidences.
