Consumer information

Page content: Move, Move, Move | Preventing pressure ulcers – An information booklet for patients | Better Health Channel fact sheet

Both staff and patients have a role to play in pressure ulcer prevention. Patients are increasingly encouraged to be more involved in their own care. Participating in informed choices and accountability for their health requires specific, consumer-focused information be available. 

The Victorian Quality Council developed ‘Move, Move, Move’ and ‘Preventing Pressure Ulcers – an information booklet for patients’ to improve consumer understanding of pressure ulcer prevention and management.

Move, Move, Move

A single page flyer aimed at all patients on admission as a quick, simple message on prevention.  This can also be laminated for use as a poster or handout.
