EPUAP-protocol- a European method to survey pressure ulcers (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The EPUAP (European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel) has developed a European-wide prevalence survey methodology, which has been used in several European countries. The EPUAP-protocol has been translated to Swedish and two prevalence studies have been conducted at Uppsala University and one at MalmöUniversity Hospital. The aim of this paper is to present the modified EPUAP-protocoll as well as our experience in using the methodology. Pressure ulcershave been described as a national quality indicator and the protocol could facilitate the follow up of an important nursing area.
