Pioneering Simplicity in Pressure Injury Prevention
With the overall prevalence of pressure ulcers standing at 9.3%1 and costs to treat ranging from $21,000 - $152,0002, pressure injuries are serious, costly and yet preventable.
Effecting more than 2.5 million patients in the United States each year, in hospitals alone2, improving the implementation of preventative interventions has never been more important.
At Frontier Therapeutics, we understand the challenges you face on a daily basis, and we want to help.
With a well-established range of products that will simply and effectively support your pressure ulcer prevention strategy, improve quality of care and ultimately help to reduce pressure ulcer prevalence3, the Frontier Therapeutics Team invite you to join them in Booth #155 or to book a private appointment via WOCNext 2020 REIMAGINED.
