Standard: $5.00


This session will review the findings from my study exploring the current state of pediatric pressure injuries in the U.S. The study design utilized secondary data from a national data bank to understand the current rates of pediatric pressure injuries and the impact of addressing risk factors in a prevention bundle. Through reviewing the results of descriptive and correlational statistics the learner will have the opportunity to identify opportunities in their own clinical practice to impact pediatric pressure injury rates.

Learning Objective:

  • Recognize the opportunities in clinical practice to improve pediatric pressure injury prevention ---only one outcome statement will be accepted---
