Based on AHCPR (Agency for Healthcare Policy and Research) Clinical Practice Guideline “Pressure Ulcers in Adults: Prediction and Prevention”, this program defines the four stages of pressure ulcer development, uses assessment tools to identify individuals at risk and illustrates prevention methods. It also discusses how to educate patients in the prevention of pressure ulcers in the home environment. For Continuing Education credits, caregiver views the video and fills out the workbook, then takes the test and fills in the evaluation. Evaluation and test are mailed with $5 for each CE hour (maximum $15). If score is 80% or better, credit is given and a certificate mailed back. If less than 80%, a new test is sent for re-testing. Complete instructions are included with video.
