Pressure Care

This comprehensive pressure care resource will deepen your understanding of pressure related injuries and their surrounding issues.

There is no legitimate reason why someone receiving a health or social care service should suffer from a pressure injury or wound. When have you encountered pressure injuries in the past? Did you know how to respond? Learning the signs, symptoms and preventative techniques is integral to your role in providing best practice person centred care.

A ‘must have’ for induction, refresher, management and vocational training.

Plus, every trainee receives a FREE training certificate on completion of the course!


SCTV is the only online care training provider to be accredited by the BAC as well as CPD, assuring you of best quality training and service.
