Inconsistency in measuring prevalence and incidence prevents facilities from benchmarking prevalence within their own facility against facilities of similar size and patient acuity. This session will focus on the importance of benchmarking prevalence and incidence, implementation strategies related to these data in the clinical setting, and how these strategies empower the WOC Nurse.

*This symposia session requires pre-registration to attend. Space is limited.*

Learning Objectives

The participant will be able to:
1. Participate in bench-marking prevalence and monitor and guide PU prevention practices.
