Gary’s participation in a journal article about the detection of pressure injuries

Library shelves full of journals.
In the last couple of days, a journal article about the detection of pressure injuries was published by an academic journal (citation below).  Gary participated in the writing of this journal article as a community member co-author.  It discusses some very promising technical developments that could radically improve the early detection of developing pressure injuries.

As a team, we strongly believe in the power of including in research teams, community members/consumers/patients.  We also believe in the principle that there should not be research about us, without us.  We also believe that there are compelling indications that the impact and value of research is greatly enhanced when the community is involved.

Pressure injuries can occur far too often in hospital and can be associated with using a wheelchair.  A couple of years ago, Gary endured a very serious pressure injury and spent around six weeks in hospital having it repaired and treated.  Consequently, the early detection of pressure injuries is very close to his heart.

Well done Gary!
