Platinum Award Winners
First Community Evaluation
2010 saw the first ever community evaluation with regard to the Aderma product range.
The evaluation at a 78 bed nursing home used methods of best practice to deliver a cost effective solution to pressure ulcer reduction, Aderma was one of the best practice methods used.
TVCS Pilot Study
Application for Drug Tariff
In 2010 the Tissue Viability Consultancy Services & Wound Healing Centre carried out an ultrasound pilot study on the Aderma heel and sacrum products to determine the impact Aderma was having beneath the skin's surface. This was an initial trial for the 30 patient study to follow in 2011.
Submission for the application onto the Drug Tariff was sent late 2010.
The drug tariff is a publication detailing all the products that are available on prescription within the community.
During Wounds UK 2010 the first piece of educational literature regarding prevention of pressure ulcers and application of the Aderma range was released and extremely well recieved by all.
