Associated Project:
Pressure Ulcer Framework
The purpose of this project was to develop a framework for measuring quality for prevention and management of pressure ulcers at both the facility and practitioner levels across the continuum.A nationally endorsed framework around the prevention and management of pressure ulcers across the continuum can serve as a road map that identifies preferred practices and performance measures, as well as areas requiring additional research or development. The evidence-based framework provides a conceptual model that identifies interrelated domains and sub domains that are applicable to multiple settings of care and providers of care. The framework, therefore, can be used to identify and organize NQF-endorsed® preferred practices and performance measures.
