Though the majority of pressure injury research involves the adult population, pressure injuries also affect infants and children. It is important for health care providers to understand both the factors involved in pressure injury development and how to prevent them occurring in at-risk neonatal and pediatric patients.
Pediatric Learning Solutions has created a course in collaboration with a multi-hospital task force introducing the risk factors and risk assessment of pressure injury development in the pediatric population.
- Identify characteristics for each stage of pressure injuries.
- Identify common locations and medical devices associated with pressure injury development.
- Use a risk assessment tool such as the Braden Q scale to assess for risk factors of developing a pressure injury.
- Implement intervention strategies to reduce risk of pressure injury development.
- Accurately distinguish a Stage 1 pressure injury.
- Length of the course is approximately 44 minutes
- Available for 0.7 CNE contact hours
- Recently reviewed in 2018
- Part of our Acute Care Learning Solutions product line
- Other Pressure Injury courses include:
Pressure Injury: Staging Assessment
Pressure Injury in the Pediatric Population: Staging and Care
