Abstract

Many nurses do not receive post-basic training on pressure area care. Even when they are knowledgeable on pressure care, nurses do not always implement this knowledge in practice. Computerised care planning appears to improve pressure area care. Qualified nurses need education about the prevention and treatment of pressure sores.
