This resource highlights key practices and treatments recommended to prevent, assess, and treat pressure sores in a format that makes sense. By translating current knowledge and encouraging self management, people will know what to ask for from the health care professionals they encounter in their journey. In this way, it will help people living with pressure sores, their families and their health care team get “the right care at the right time."
