Middlesex University, in collaboration with the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre, are actively recruiting research participants for their project ‘Managing the risks of pressure ulcers in people with Spinal Cord Injury.'  Evidence suggests that people with a spinal cord injury will experience at least one pressure ulcer in their lifetime, and that when a pressure ulcer develops, it takes a long time to heal.  This negatively impacts their quality of life and contributes to the cost burden on the NHS. 

The aim of the research is to understand how people with a spinal cord injury manage their skincare, understand their attitudes towards skincare self-management, and how these factors affect the incidence of pressure ulcers.
