Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pressure ulcers adversely affect the quality of life of many patients and cause anxiety and distress for their families. Pressure ulcer prevention and management is an integral part of nursing practice, but despite numerous policies and guidelines, research, and improvements in equipment, the incidence and prevalence of pressure ulcers have not fallen. In this article, the author examines issues involved in promoting more effective pressure ulcer management.
