Pressure Injuries and Skin Checks

People with spinal cord injury are at increased risk of developing pressure injuries throughout their lifetime. A key aspect of prevention is performing regular daily skin checks. The video identifies key factors to consider when completing skin checks and also demonstrates the technique on how to complete skin checks independently and with assistance.

Clinicians across the SCI-IEQCC Network from Parkwood Institute, Hamilton Regional Rehabilitation Centre, Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Center, Lyndhurst, Providence Care collaborated on this video alongside SCIO, Cortree and persons with lived experience.
