CP78 Treatment and management of pressure ulcers
All CWP staff.
This guideline provides guidance to Cheshire and Wirral Partnership (CWP)
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.
