This guideline provides guidance to Cheshire and Wirral Partnership (CWP) West Physical health staff in the relation to the reduction in risk of pressure ulcer development and the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of pressure ulcers which have developed. The document outlines best practice standards for the prevention and management of pressure ulcers.
The ultimate aim of the guideline is to support staff to reduce the incidence of pressure ulcer development and to ensure that, should a pressure ulcer develop, it is managed in an evidenced based, effective way.
