Preventive interventions for pressureulcers in long-term older people care facilities: A systematic review To explore the effectiveness of interventions aimed at pressureulcer (PU) prevention in long-term older people care facilities (LOPC).Pressureulcers cause suffering for patients and constitute a major financial burden. Although most PUs could be prevented, their number has remained high. To avoid unnecessary suffering and costs, PU prevention must be effective.A systematic review.A
Risk assessment tools for the prevention of pressureulcers. Use of pressureulcer risk assessment tools or scales is a component of the assessment process used to identify individuals at risk of developing a pressureulcer. Use of a risk assessment tool is recommended by many international pressureulcer prevention guidelines, however it is not known whether using a risk assessment tool makes a difference to patient outcomes. We conducted a review to provide a summary of the evidence (...) pertaining to pressureulcer risk assessment in clinical practice, and this is the third update of this review.To assess whether using structured and systematic pressureulcer risk assessment tools, in any healthcare setting, reduces the incidence of pressure ulcers.In February 2018 we searched the Cochrane Wounds Specialised Register; the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL); Ovid MEDLINE (including In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations); Ovid Embase; and EBSCO CINAHL Plus.

Organisation of health services for preventing and treating pressureulcers. Pressureulcers, which are a localised injury to the skin, or underlying tissue, or both, occur when people are unable to reposition themselves to relieve pressure on bony prominences. Pressureulcers are often difficult to heal, painful, expensive to manage and have a negative impact on quality of life. While individual patient safety and quality care stem largely from direct healthcare practitioner-patient (...) interactions, each practitioner-patient wound-care contact may be constrained or enhanced by healthcare organisation of services. Research is needed to demonstrate clearly the effect of different provider-orientated approaches to pressureulcer prevention and treatment.To assess the effects of different provider-orientated interventions targeted at the organisation of health services, on the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.In April 2018 we searched the Cochrane Wounds Specialised Register
Dressings and topical agents for preventing pressureulcers. Pressureulcers, localised injuries to the skin or underlying tissue, or both, occur when people cannot reposition themselves to relieve pressure on bony prominences. These wounds are difficult to heal, painful, expensive to manage and have a negative impact on quality of life. Prevention strategies include nutritional support and pressure redistribution. Dressing and topical agents aimed at prevention are also widely used, however (...) , it remains unclear which, if any, are most effective. This is the first update of this review, which was originally published in 2013.To evaluate the effects of dressings and topical agents on pressureulcer prevention, in people of any age, without existing pressureulcers, but considered to be at risk of developing one, in any healthcare setting.In March 2017 we searched the Cochrane Wounds Group Specialised Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE, MEDLINE (In-Process & Other Non-Indexed Citations), Embase
Evaluating the development and validation of empirically-derived prognostic models for pressureulcer risk assessment: A systematic review Researchers advocate developing empirically-derived prognostic models to predict pressureulcer risk. However, there remains a scarcity of evidence about the performance and clinical value of these models.To identify and describe empirically-derived models for predicting pressureulcer risk; to assess the predictive performance of these models (...) ; and to evaluate their clinical impact in reducing pressureulcer incidence.We performed a comprehensive database search up to February 2017 and searched other resources to identify longitudinal studies that developed and/or validated prognostic models for predicting pressureulcer risk and studies evaluating the clinical effects of such models. There were no language or publication date restrictions. Two reviewers independently conducted study selection. Using a pre-prepared data extraction form, one reviewer
Support surfaces for treating pressureulcers. Pressureulcers are treated by reducing pressure on the areas of damaged skin. Special support surfaces (including beds, mattresses and cushions) designed to redistribute pressure, are widely used as treatments. The relative effects of different support surfaces are unclear. This is an update of an existing review.To assess the effects of pressure-relieving support surfaces in the treatment of pressure ulcers.In September 2017 we searched (...) of publication or study setting.We included published or unpublished randomised controlled trials (RCTs), that assessed the effects of support surfaces for treating pressureulcers, in any participant group or setting.Data extraction, assessment of 'Risk of bias' and GRADE assessments were performed independently by two review authors. Trials with similar participants, comparisons and outcomes were considered for meta-analysis. Where meta-analysis was inappropriate, we reported the results of the trials

[The Epidemiology of PressureUlcer in Germany: Systematic Review]. Pressureulcers are considered as indicators of the quality of care. The aim of this study was to provide a systematic review of the incidence and prevalence of pressureulcers in Germany between 2010 and 2015.The databases PubMed, CINAHL, DIMDI, Web of Science, LIVIVO, Google, Google Scholar, as well as the publishers Springer and the Thieme were searched until the end of February 2016. The extracted data were monitored by two (...) 0.07% to 4.37%. No incidence figures and no routine data collections were identified for ambulatory settings. Prevalence varied between 2 and 4% (including category 1).Review results indicate that pressureulcers are frequent within all health care settings in Germany. Disregarding methodological limitations, pressureulcer prevalence is between 2% and 5% in long-term care patients. Due to the heterogeneity of the available data, generalizable statements are not possible for the hospital settings
