Pressure ulcer prevalence is high in hospitals and home settings in Brazil for patients with immobility and impaired sensory perception. Education of nurses, for an evidenced based practice is seemed as a critical component for improvement of care. The purpose of this presentation is to report our experiences in a research utilization project as an effort to move nursing science closer to international professional practice standards related to pressure ulcer prevention and management. The activities for registered and student nurses at a university hospital and 3 community health centers fostered the use of research related literature and the education of patients at-risk for pressure ulcers and their family members. Activities included: (a) national and international systematic literature reviews for updating knowledge, (b) translation of selected journals articles and the AHRQ’s guideline Pressure Ulcers in Adults: Prediction and Prevention to Portuguese, (c) development of pressure ulcer prevention protocols from evidenced based literature, (d) development of patient education materials, (e) participation in conferences, discussion groups, and journals clubs with health care professionals and nursing students, and (f) development of an internet home page devoted to pressure ulcer prevention and electronic communication. To solve the problem of a lack of resources for implementation of this project, a collaborative effort was initiated among nurses from service, a faculty member of a Brazilian university, and an American nurse researcher. As a result of the project’s activities, there has been an improvement in registered nurses’ and student nurses’ pressure ulcer knowledge, an increase in the number of hits to the pressure ulcer home page and an increase in emails questions related to pressure ulcers.
