The QASA / Momentum National Care Attendant Training got under way in October. The high prevalence of pressure sores amongst QASA Self Help Centre residents has been the cause of much concern over the past few years. In some circumstances, residents have died due the severity of their pressure sores. Compounding this issue is the lack of capacity amongst care givers. Very few of the care givers have had formal training about pressure sores and the general care of paraplegics and quadriplegics.
