Pressure injuries are a significant health threat. It has been estimated that 2.5 million patients in the United States develop one or more pressure injuries and as many as 60,000 of these individuals die from the resulting complications each year. Prevention is the best approach for addressing this significant healthcare issue. In recent years, quality improvement and healthcare expenditures have focused on pressure injury prevention and these efforts have been very successful. In this course, participants will be provided with the information they will need to prepare to build and implement a facility-wide pressure injury prevention program.
After completing this continuing nursing education activity, nurses will be able to design an organization-wide pressure injury prevention program and predict the outcomes of this program on patient care and outcomes.
This continuing education activity is for nurses who would like more information about how to develop a pressure injury prevention program.
