Abstract

The Center For Decubitus Ulcer Research, Information And Education, founded in 1975, is an independently directed "clearinghouse" for information and educational materials developed from research needed by the health care community challenged by the problems of Skin Destruction {SD) prevention and treatment. It also conducts workshops during which it shares knowledge and skills with hands-on personnel responsible for delivering care to the at-risk and already victimized SD patient.

Now the center has prepared an information-packed manual entitled STRATEGY For The Prevention and Treatment of Skin Destruction and provides a free copy to the SD Policy and Planning Committee in each facility requesting it.

In STRATEGY the how-tos of SD prevention and treatment are examined. Protocol and products useful to the hands-on team are identified, categorized by purpose-use value, and described. STRATEGY also contains a Glossary of SD terminology, Priority Inquiry Mailers to request additional information, and educational assistance from the center and elsewhere.

For your own facility's complimen- tary copy of STRATEGY medical/ nursing administration should write: The Center-Strategy, 408 NE Alice Ave, Jensen Beach, Florida 33457.…
