Abstract

This article discusses how a curricular model for introducing nurses to the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario Best Practice Guideline Risk Assessment and Prevention of Pressure Ulcers was used to reduce pressure ulcer prevalence in the critical care setting. This curricular model is particularly relevant to hospitals that are on the Magnet Journey or are involved in other quality improvement efforts to develop an evidence-based nursing practice culture.
