Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Ulcers: Quick Reference Guide

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel, European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel and Pan Pacific Pressure Injury Alliance have worked together to develop clinical practice guidelines for the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.

Unfortunately, the complete comprehensive clinical practice guideline is not available for free to the public and can only be purchased online to ensure that relevant information is freely available to clinicians working with patients and residents at risk of pressure ulcers. However, a Quick Reference Guide in electronic form is available free online and contains recommendations for all stages of pressure injury management, from skin and tissue risk assessment to wound care and options for non-healing wounds. Also within this quick reference guide are specific recommendations for special populations such as older adults and bariatric individuals.
