If you provide nutrition care for patients with pressure injuries, you’ll want to learn how to incorporate these new evidence based nutrition guidelines into your practice!

Nancy Munoz, DCN, MHA, RDN, LDN, FAND and Mary Ellen Posthauer, RDN, LD, FAND, members of the small work group that developed 2019 EPUAP/NPIAP/PPIA nutrition guidelines, will discuss the value of collaboration with the interdisciplinary healthcare team and how to incorporate these new guidelines into practice. 

The comorbidities associated with pressure injuries require more healthcare resources and contribute to increased length of stay and hospital readmission. Are you currently screening for malnutrition and pressure injury risk and quickly implementing a patient-centered nutrition plan? Does your QAPI plan include the nutrition management of pressure injuries? Do you provide nutrition counseling for patients with pressure injuries receiving treatment at a wound clinic or home health care agency? 

It is critical for practitioners to understand the importance of implementing rigorously developed evidence based nutrition guidelines to improve outcomes for individuals with pressure injuries. The goal of the 2019 collaborative alliance between, the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP), the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP) and the Pan Pacific Pressure Injury Alliance (PPPIA) was to provide an updated review of the research, and develop nutrition recommendations that reflect the most recent evidence.

This self study course makes a great CPE program, because until this course was available, current information on this topic of medical marijuana and cannabis use has been difficult to find and consolidate into usable and practical information for RDNs and NDTRs.
