Pressure injuries can be improved and prevented by appropriate and timely dietary interventions. This improves patient overall well-being and decreases length of stay. Too many facilities, especially those who are short staffed, are lacking pressure injury prevention knowledge. This course provides the RDN or NDTR with tools to create standards of care and protocols to address pressure injuries.

This CPE course is essential for all levels of practitioner in ensuring they are providing the most up-to-date, quality care for at-risk residents with pressure injuries. Additionally, this program will assist practitioners in implementing up-to-date, evidence-based practices into their facilities.

It is important for clinicians to be able to identify residents who are malnourished or at risk for malnutrition as it relates to wound care. It is also important to note and understand that residents who are malnourished or at risk for malnutrition will be at risk for longer hospital stays as well as being at risk for other comorbid conditions. Early intervention to address and treat nutrition concerns is key as it relates to vulnerable populations as discussed in this self study course.
