I was fortunate enough to attend the most recent NPUAP (National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel) meeting held in Chicago (April 8th – April 9th). It was a great meeting to participate in because voting took place on changing terminology. Professionals involved in the wound care field are very passionate about the staging of Ulcers and for good reason.
Attached is the press release that explains the changes that were voted on. I think you will be able to tell that a lot of hard work went into this.
