Description

Please note: No international orders (outside of the United States) will be accepted for the Pressure Ulcers (Injuries) Guideline through this site. Contact Becky Carroll (bcarroll@wocn.org) if you wish to place an international order.

The WOCN Society is committed to developing evidence-based guidelines by applying state-of-the-science methods. To remain current, the WOCN Society's Guidelines Task Force embarked on a two-year long operation to update the 2010 Guideline for Prevention and Management of Pressure Ulcers.

The updated document includes a summary of recommendations and an overview of the definition, background, significance, etiology, prevalence and incidence, classification system, as well as medical device-related pressure ulcers. The updated guideline also includes information for overall management goals, assessment and treatment strategies, preventative interventions and a robust glossary. Within the appendices are the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel's (NPUAP) new pressure injury stages and illustrations (in color), along with multiple tools for managing pressure ulcers, including the WOCN Society’s evidence- and consensus-based Support Surface Algorithm.
