An oft repeated theme of this page is the need for greater collaboration between organisations and individuals working within tissue viability. As good an example as one could wish for is the joint working between the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP) and its US counterpart, the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), to update their guidelines on the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers. Carol Dealey, President of the EPUAP, summarises some of the new guidance on page 368 of this issue, giving examples of guideline statements that are likely to have key implications for practice. These range from the recommendation to use the term 'category' instead of 'grade' or 'stage' for pressure ulcers (editors take note!), to advice that pressure ulcer pain should be assessed at every shift and dressing change.
