Heel pressure ulcers are the second most common site for pressure ulceration; although their assessment and treatment can be complex, and they often require additional consideration over and above core principles of pressure ulcer prevention and management. Recent international pressure ulcer prevention and treatment guidelines developed jointly in Europe and the USA have provided greater clarity by achieving international consensus on how to care for patients at risk of heel pressure ulceration, and also on the management of such patients if a pressure ulcer develops. Health professionals should embrace these guidelines and embed them in their everyday clinical practice and within local guidance and protocols to ensure that patients are provided with evidence-based care supported by international collaboration and agreement.
