Re‐positioning For Pressure Ulcer Prevention
Published 2008 · Medicine
This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: To conduct a systematic review of research evidence to answer the following questions: Does manual repositioning of patients reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers compared with no repositioning with or without specialised support surface provision Do schedules for manual repositioning reduce pressure ulcer incidence compared with repositioning on an ad hoc basis? Are 2 hourly changes of position more effective in reducing pressure ulcer incidence than other frequencies of position change? Are particular patient positions associated with lower pressure ulcer incidence than others?
