Everyday, patients develop skin injuries and irritations related to the application and removal of medical adhesives. Many medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI) are preventable, almost all are treatable. Each are associated with significant discomfort, and sometimes, permanent disfigurement.
The ability to recognise, prevent and treat MARSI is a skill that can be incorporated to clinical practice straight away, that will significantly improve outcomes for patients, and healthcare institutions. Led by Dr Amanda Ullman, this interactive, case-study based MARSI webinar will provide you with the knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure you are prepared to provide high quality skin and wound care, to identify, prevent and treat MARSI.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
1. Recognise medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI) presentations
2. Describe effective strategies and practices to prevent MARSI development
3. Apply evidence-based wound care practices to promote MARSI resolution
4. Identify systematic solutions that can be implemented across healthcare facilities to improve our patients skin health.
