European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP)
The EPUAP goal is to provide relief for persons suffering from, or at risk of, pressure ulcers, through research and the education of the public and by influencing pressure ulcer policy in all European countries towards an adequate patient centred and cost effective pressure ulcer care. The EPUAP involves people working in the field as doctors, nurses and other health professionals, but also members working in research and education or in industry. The overall aim is to find out what is the best way to prevent and treat pressure ulcers.
National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP)
The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) serves as the authoritative voice for improved patient outcomes in pressure injury prevention and treatment through public policy, education and research.
