Abstract:
Pressure ulcers result in physical and emotional distress for patients and, increased health care time and resources. In keeping with the hospital initiative to "Do No Harm," an interdisciplinary team set out to determine best practice for the management and prevention of pressure ulcers. Using an evidence-based methodology, this presentation will discuss how the team reviewed baseline outcome measures; critically analyzed the literature; developed an evidence table; determined and implemented best practice standards; and, collected both process (to revised practice standards) and outcome data. The presenters will share how the institution maximized resources for the project by using student nurses from an affiliated University program to assist in data collection. In addition, we will share our successes and barriers to changing established nursing practice patterns as well as the model for using the evidence.
