Skin tears are extremely common wounds in people over the age of 65. Even though they are common, there is not much information on the prevention, assessment, and management of skin tears. This can lead to skin tears being mismanaged and result in complications such as pain and infection.

At Richardson Healthcare, we want to spread awareness of skin tear management by providing free in-person and online training to all UK healthcare professionals to ensure the best possible patient outcomes.
