  1. 0 I am involved in an education class this summer and part of the class deals with putting together an one hour class. I want to teach on prevention of pressure ulcers and staging. Does anyone have any resource suggestions and or creative ideas to present this info maintain interest?

    You might have heard of the "Braden Scale". http://www.vnaa.org/vnaa/GeneralCont...aden_scale.pdf

    If not you can Google more information. It's becoming a standard way of predicting pressure ulcers. In our facility anyone with a Braden scale of 18 (it was 16 but raised to 18 to assure compliance) are automatically put on "skin care protocol", i.e. turning q2h, floating heels, etc.

    Good luck!
