Under pressure: just a blanchable event or an underlying injury? It can be much more difficult to distinguish a deeper tissue injury from a stage 1 injury when assessing darker skin tones versus very light skin tones. The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel modified descriptive language from pressure ulcer to pressure injury in 2016. Since skin can look very different based on an individual’s skin tone, it’s important to fortify assessment skills with tips you can use to help prevent “missed” deeper injuries.
Conference Objectives are :
The goal of this presentation is to describe the differences between deep tissue injuries and stage 1 pressure injuries, especially in dark skin tones. Upon completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
• Explain the differences between deep tissue injuries and stage 1 pressure injuries.
• Identify risk factors for patients who develop deep tissue injuries and stage 1 pressure injuries.
• Collaborate interprofessionally with members of the healthcare team to address prevention of skin injuries.
