Supported by HillRom

This presentation will discuss current trends in pressure injury development in the acute care setting identified through the International Pressure Ulcer Prevalence (IPUPTM) survey. National prevalence rates, risk factors and prevention strategies will be discussed across acute care sub-specialties as well as factors that contribute to unavoidable pressure injury development. Input from WOCN attendees at this session, along with these results will become the focus of a future study on unavoidable pressure injuries in acute care.
