Clinical practice guideline

Résumé :

This guideline includes updates for staging according to the 2007 National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP). The CPG discusses such controversial areas as photographic documentation, nutritional interventions, reverse staging, risk assessment tools, debriding of wounds, selection of ulcer care products and support surface options, treatments such as negative pressure wound therapy, incontinence as a causative factor, and much more.

The guideline is evidence-based and incorporates the revised federal guidance to surveyors on pressure ulcers (Tag F314) including:

Risk factors;
Pain management;
Treatments based on the wound characteristics; and
The resident's rights to refuse one or more aspects of pressure ulcer care.
