Pressure Injury Assessment, Prevention, and Management: Best Practices for Hospice

Back to Package

Pressure injury prevalence rates for individuals at the end-of-life range from 12% to 34%. Common symptoms associated with pressure injuries include pain, malodor, excessive exudate, and a feeling of loss. The high prevalence of pressure injuries in this vulnerable population coupled with the associated symptom burden confirms the importance of pressure injury assessment, prevention, and management best practices in hospice. Despite the need for pressure injury knowledge, research shows that nursing knowledge in this area is limited. This session will identify best practices of pressure injuries in hospice using the 2019 National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP) Clinical Practice Guidelines as the foundation.
