Spread the love


Ulcers are sores on the lining of your stomach or small intestine. Sores also could be on your esophagus (throat). Most ulcers are located in the small intestine. These ulcers are called duodenal ulcers. Stomach ulcers are called gastric ulcers. Ulcers in the throat are called esophageal ulcers.

Common ulcer symptoms include:

  • Discomfort between meals or during the night (duodenal ulcer)
  • Discomfort when you eat or drink (gastric ulcer)
  • Stomach pain that wakes you up at night
  • Feel full fast
  • Bloating, burning or dull pain in your stomach
  • Comes and goes days or weeks at a time
  • The discomfort lasts for minutes or hours.

An essential guide to pressure ulcer reporting

With support from expert guest speakers, the session offers an essential guide to the new surveillance software and what it means for clinicians across the busy acute healthcare sector.

The Health System is a data-driven improvement tool that enables NHS health systems and trusts to benchmark quality and productivity; data for acute, ambulance and community NHS trusts. Moving to use this as a means for pressure ulcer surveillance will be the first national, large-scale change since the Safety Thermometer was launched in 2011.

This webinar aims to help clinicians better understand the reasons behind why the NHS Safety Thermometer was discontinued in 2020, as well as provide an overview on pressure ulcer monitoring. In addition, the expert speakers will outline how the Model Health System is different and what it seeks to achieve to help deliver improved patient outcomes.

Liverpool Heart and Chest NHS Foundation Trust was among the few trial sites selected, to ensure a smooth implementation of the new Model Health System. Therefore, both speakers will be able to share their clinical experiences and understanding of how this will affect pressure ulcer reporting moving forward, helping to show clinicians what they need to know as this new system is launched.

The webinar is CPD-certified and allows attendees to gain 1.5 hours of participation towards their revalidation, while engaging in thought-provoking discussions and the exchange of practical experiences with health professionals and their peers. This includes the opportunity to pose questions in a designated Q&A session with both speakers, to further understanding and knowledge.
