1. Etiology and Assessment Requirements of Pressure Injuries
It is important to determine the etiology of a wound to ensure proper treatment and support. In Chapter One, we will discuss the etiology of pressure injuries. We will also discuss the necessary components of pressure injury assessment to meet standards of practice.
2. Staging Pressure Injuries
In Chapter Two, we will discuss the NPUAP pressure injury staging system. We will discuss the types of tissues that may be present in a wound bed to help determine the appropriate stage.
3. Comprehensive Assessment of Pressure Injuries
