Accreditation Check:
Accurate assessment of a pressure injury is important, as it is the foundation to determine and evaluate the course of treatment. This course will provide you with the information needed to complete a comprehensive assessment of a pressure injury. The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) pressure injury definitions and staging system will be discussed, as well as wound measurement, wound base description, peri-wound, drainage, odor, tunneling, undermining, and pain assessment. You will also have an opportunity to practice staging, measuring, and describing a pressure injury.

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

To assess if the pressure injury is healing or having signs of deterioration or infection, a comprehensive assessment must be done. Thus, in addition to assessing the wound bed and stage, you must also assess the size and depth, wound edges, odor, drainage, tunneling, undermining, and pain.
