Join us for a comprehensive program on the latest evidenced-based information for the prevention and management of pressure injuries.


According to the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP), a pressure injury is localized damage to the skin and underlying soft tissue, usually over a bony prominence or related to a medical or other device. It can present as intact skin or an open ulcer and may be painful. It occurs as a result of intense or prolonged pressure or pressure in combination with shear.


Although the terms “decubitus ulcer”, “pressure sore”, and “pressure ulcer” have often been used interchangeably, the NPUAP currently considers “pressure injury” the best term to use, given that open ulceration does not always occur.
